My iris "Immortality" happily blooming in September
There is an iris in full bloom in my garden. When I planted it I knew that it is a re-bloomer and comes back in the fall, but I didn't expect that it will be blooming through August and September and will keep coming up with new flowering stems again and again. This is definitely a winner in my search for long blooming perennials. And as one doesn't get many chances to paint irises in the fall, here it is. I didn't plan well the background and am not very happy with how it turned out, but you get the idea that I was after strong contrast.
