Autumn Tryst

What is a Tryst?

Tryst –  an arrangement to meet, especially one made privately or secretly by lovers.

But I must say…. my Autumn Tryst should not be kept a secret….  I am in love with it and telling everyone how pretty this reblooming iris is in my garden today.
I actually have three blooming right now…. the white one Immortality that I posted this week, this one, and one getting ready to bloom called Congratulations.
I will show you a pic when it opens….but what a treat to have things still blooming in late October.  I planted these Mid-Spring of this year, so I am very happy.

They are blooming in my Butterfly Garden.  In the back of this picture you can see my guaras…. they have came back to life this week and are blooming both white and pink flowers on the same plant.  Very pretty!

Here is a closer shot, it is hard to photograph….but beautiful swaying in the breeze.
I will be posting more later….until then….
Happy Gardening…..Brooke

  1. Very nice. I cut my guara back in late summer to keep it a little more under control and a new flush of blooms.

  3. Wow, I've heard of the rebloomers, but didn't know they'd keep going 'til now- I've got to try some!
    Thanks for posting!

  4. Yes, Jami... I went crazy looking for them after seeing some in person last fall. There must have been 20 in a bunch blooming in October in a dentist offices landscape. They were easy to find once I started looking on the net and several came from ebay. They shipped them in the spring and I would say look for "freshly dug" rather than bareroot. The ones that are blooming on the first year are the ones that came green and healthy. I have three blooming right now, and this one is the prettiest in my opinion.
