Red Hot Chili KickStart™ Reblooming Iris

Branching out from spring pastels? This warm-toned darling has got you covered. It's an intermediate iris, which means it'll grow to a mature height somewhere between a dwarf and tall bearded iris. Great news if you want a mixed-iris border, you can create easy levels with dwarf varieties down front, tall bearded iris in the back and bring that show to life with Red Hot Chili's wild bicolor in the middle. And there's more good news; you'll see these lovely blooms during Red Hot Chili's first spring in your garden. Even a top-quality #1 rhizome may take a couple years of building energy before delivering perennial color. Our new, exclusive KickStart™ Iris are guaranteed to bloom in year one. Plus, they're already developing more stems for year two... or divide and share them with an envious friend. Also, we only selected reblooming iris varieties for this series, so you can surround it with other KickStart™ varieties, and you'll have an extra-long iris season to look forward to.
