For my weekly offering for In a Vase on Monday I am pleased to present a single column of ‘Immortality’ bearded iris. There are many plants blooming in my garden right now that have appeared in recent Monday postings, so I thought it might be appropriate to spotlight this one beauty that opened this week. It is such a pleasure to have iris blooming in autumn. This is the first to bloom this fall, but there are more coming.
I have been growing ‘Immortality’ for over fifteen years in two gardens, and it has reliably rebloomed each year. One of the characteristics that it shares with other remontat (reblooming) iris is that it multiplies quite rapidly, often needing dividing in two years. You may want to see my July 26 post in which I captured the division and replanting of ‘Immortality.’ It is from that replanting that this flowering scape came.
