Red Hot Chili Reblooming Iris

Rich, rusty red adds warm tones to the spring garden

  • Rusty red over rich yellow adds warmth to the spring garden
  • Strong rebloomer
  • Shorter variety for closer to the front of the border
Add some warm, rich tones as beautiful contrast to the pastels of spring. This gorgeous iris will be one of the first to bloom in your garden, and you can enjoy it again in late summer when it reblooms. Growing to just 18-20 inches, it is one of the shorter bearded irises, and can be planted in front of taller iris varieties for a beautiful layered look in the landscape. Zones 4-9.
