why Hello All; I planted reblooming iris two
years ago and not once have they rebloomed. Did I
get taken about these being rebloomers or what. I
do recall they were more expensive then the reg iris

I did follow the direction about deadheading and
fertilizing and all, but I figure I might be doing
something wrong.They just finished there "first"
bloom and I deadheaded them.

any advice is well excepted

Thanks
Donnie

say that...honey put down that hoe... :(

what's the cultivar name?

is it in the correct soil type and does it get the correct sunlight and water?

what zone are you in? if you're in too cold a zone, they may not have enough time to re-bloom. or, if you're in too hot a zone, that might be the issue.


Zone 6b

Off hand I can't remember,I ordered them from spring Hill
though,I will have to check.The soil is med loom, with a
PH of 4.5,They get morning sun for about 6 hr,and the water
is on a soaker hose system on a timer which gives at least
1 inch of water a week. When they first bloom "now" they are
beautiful,they last about two weeks then fade. I think that
the conditions are fine being they do bloom the first time.

I'am also in zone 6b

Thanks
Donnie
