I have a bearded Iris "Lenora Pearl". It didn't bloom in the spring but is going strong now, and has been since the beginning of October. It's gorgeous

I've responded to this question in my blog article of November 14 right on this site.

If you are interested in more information on reblooming irises there is a Reblooming Iris Society, a section of the American Iris Society. Their web address is: They publish a beautiful colour bulletin twice a year where you can find our what other reblooming irises bloom in your area. I just enjoyed one bloom stalk in November on my dining room table! I'd brought it indoors to save it from the frost.
