Rebloomers that were created,grown and sold in similar climates are the best. 
Zurbriggs iris do well for us. I agree with jreeds that Monty Byers iris are 
vigorous and very hardy.Hagers and Lauers are from just down the street so 
they do well. Suttons have a lot of rebloomers and are rated by zone in their 
catalog. I would recommend you stay away from early bloomers for your 
weather. Double Shot is an outstanding and multi-blooming iris but started 
blooming in early March here. A tad bit early for you maybe...

Uh.. Multi bloomer is what I call my iris that bloom more than twice a year.
