Both Immortality and Harvest of Memories grow well and bloom regularly in our Zone 2b(US Zone 3) climate.  Immortality will also rebloom in this climate.  I have found that reblooming irises seem to do
better in my climate than other TB's, in that they will bloom more regularly and increase well generally.

Hi Linda,
IMMORTALITY does grow and bloom in the spring, however it does not rebloom for me. It may rebloom in cooler Arizona climates. (Or if it's babied, but I don't baby my irises.) 
HARVEST OF MEMORIES grows, blooms in the spring, AND reblooms regularly.
Most, if not all reblooming TB's will grow and bloom, at least in the spring. Makes me wonder if those in particular has both kind of genes - the Aphylla, and warm climate genes - along with the rebloom gene.
I think these kind of varieties would do a hybridizer well if he/she used those. It seems they perform well almost anywhere.

Margie, I'm curious - do IMMORTALITY or HARVEST OF MEMORIES survive for

They seem to have some aphylla genes, judging from branching in
seedlings, and, in the rebloom checklist, both are reported to rebloom
in AZ and NM.
