Re-blooming Iris: An iris that blooms in the
spring and again in the same growing season.
Judge's Handbook, American Iris Society.

The Reblooming Iris Society, a section of the
AIS, has attempted to classify reblooming
iris according to behavior patterns in the
growing season. There are basically four
distinguishable behavior patterns in modern
reblooming iris.

1 - Rebloomers (Cyclic Rebloomers), the
standard for this group, are cultivators which
complete two distinct cycles of bloom. After
the spring flowering, there is a second
predictable period of bloom.

2 - Continuous or Everblooming Iris send up
bloomstalks repeatedly at any time throughout
the growing season, spring to summer and fall.

3 - Repeaters produce additional bloomstalks with unpredictable regularity immediately following the initial
Spring bloom season, It is not uncommon for these vaR/Eties to extend the spring bloom season from four
to eight weeks.

4 - Occasional Rebloomers (sometimes called sporadic) are vaR/Eties which unpredictably produce
bloomstalks at variable times during the growing season. Many occasional rebloomers perform well on the
West coast and the southern areas of the United states. While they are highly regarded there, they may
not show reblooming tendencies in colder climates.

The only additional required care for Reblooming Irises is light fertilizing after the Spring blooming season.
