Autumn Thunder Reblooming Bearded Iris

For a Repeat Show
This iris stands in high regard—the renowned RHS Plant Finder publication has included it since 2007. It was introduced in 2000 by George Sutton, well-known for the hundreds of hybrid irises he's registered. If you can't get enough of striking iris blooms, this is the one for you. In zones 6 and up, it'll rebloom, not once but twice through the season. It's dramatically beautiful too, with pristine white falls emphasized by deep purple-blue edging. The edges are also heavily ruffled, for a truly elegant display over blue-green leaves. The branching is well formed. Irises are both deer resistant and drought tolerant.
