(Zurbrigg 1982) TB RE 30 inches (76 cm), M. White

Immortality isn't the ordinary white Iris. It is a favorite of Iris lovers the world over. It has won both top awards and the esteem of gardeners. Its flowers are wonderful. They are medium sized with good form and a pure, satiny white coloring. The beard is a light lemon. It is also a fragrant Iris with a sweet scent that makes them doubly enjoyable as a cut flower.

Reliable rebloom for us in zone 8. Reported to rebloom in zones 3 to 9.
