  • A strong, reblooming variety
There are many reasons to love Blatant's blooms. They grow large, reaching about 5.5" across. They're fragrant and colorful, which is just as enjoyable in the vase as it is in the garden. Blatant reblooms later in the season to keep your iris show bright, and this KickStart variety starts the show a year sooner than the industry's top selection! Even a #1 rhizome may take a couple years of building energy before delivering years of reliable, low-maintenance perennial color. 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 no matter if you create a mass planting of Blatant, or surround it with other KickStart varieties, you'll have an extra-long iris season to look forward to.
