Thanks El, and that's a great list of rebloomers for zone 3, good info to have.  I think out of the ones you listed, I only grow forever blue, and siberian butter and sugar. The others are on my list now, if they rebloom for you in zone 3, maybe they'll rebloom for me in zone 6.  :)

Nice one, Will.
I never bought any iris for their rebloom, until Chuck Chapman's SDB Forever Blue rebloomed in my garden in July 1999, during the week we were moving here.  I figured it was just a fluke.  But it's rebloomed here fairly consistently in July, and sometimes again in Sept.
The only others to consistently rebloom in July and/or Sept are also Chuck's - SDB Autumn Jester, Blueberry Tart, Wizard of Hope.  SDB Ruby Eruption rebloomed last year, as did MDB Forever Violet; both were about 5 year old clumps at the time.  SDB Didgeridoo also rebloomed here for the first time, last Sept.
Over the years, a few others have rebloomed, but only once, so far:  Siberians Dreaming Yellow and Butter n Sugar, SDB Grape Cordial, MDB's Gold Canary, Glenwillow, Ditto, Bee Wings and Velvet Toy.
I often say I should build a bed just for potential rebloomers, but I always run out of time somehow.

This cross was mainly about rebloom.  Immortality x Apollo one.   Falls look to be slightly darker. This is maiden bloom. Haven't checked to see if these are 2 stalks of the same clump, or siblings, but they look identical, one more stalk to bloom, but I'm sure it's off the same clump as the stalk on the right.  7 buds, little ridge at end of beard, not enough to call a horn.  Seems pretty vigorous, not much color.  Form is better than Immortality, but eh, well, let's see if it reblooms. ;) 
Some damage from rain yesterday, severe weather rolling in this afternoon.
