From standards to falls, Rubanesque is covered in an unusual color that'll shake up your mixed iris border. It's a vigorous performer, with a high bud count in early spring, and a strong rebloom around midseason, and sometimes late in the season, too. Named for the Flemish artist, Peter Paul Ruben, and his style of featuring shapely models, Rubenesque blooms are wide and curvaceous. They make a big splash in a cut flower bouquet. Iris germanica 'Rubenesque'

Great news! We have a small batch of Rubenesque in our exclusive KickStart™ rhizome size. Even a top-quality #1 rhizome may take a couple years of building energy before delivering 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.
