An Iris in November I think the iris thinks it’s Spring. Tonight we’ll be below freezing. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSkypePinterestTumblrWhatsAppLike this:Like Loading...

Confusion! 🙂 🙂 Happy Sunday, Ruth!
Yes. Poor thing will be covered in frost. Have a good week,Jo.❤️
That flower does seem to care about the weather.
I’d like to think, the iris is telling us the world is confused but spring will come.
How cute is that, the warmer weather certainly confused the Iris. Time to cover up and go dormant.
They really aren’t confused, it’s what they do. They’re called reblooming irises. Most of them are the shorter standard dwarf bearded iris that bloom in the early spring, before the showier tall bearded irises, and then with enough fertilizer, rebloom in the fall. I think they look weird because they’re out of place among the fallen leaves of autumn. But Iris hybridizers love them and customers buy them up. Here’s one taller one called Immortality, pure white, that has been known to rebloom in zones 5and 6, but for the most part they are standard dwarf irises. Farther south they have many more that rebloom. Winterberry Gardens, an Iris hybridizer, has a mail order business that specializes in rebloomers.
Well I had no idea. Thanks you E
Poor guy is in for a shock… 🙁
Now this is certainly an oddity. But, oh, so welcome right now.
