hese Napa Country Iris Garden - Iris Garden in Napa California featuring Tall Bearded Iris Rhizomes. Beautiful flower photos and great prices.

Garden Welcome

Welcome to our 2016 garden website. The display garden is closed now but we will open for the spring bloom in 2017 sometime in April. Weather plays a big role in the timing of the bloom so we will announce the open times once we get closer next spring. There were over 500 varieties with 59 new iris varieties for 2016. We've been trying to cut back as we get older but it is such an arduous task and difficult to do with so many fantastic iris to consider - do they stay or do they go? Most of the irises we carry are the tall bearded type. We are actually in the process of replacing some of the iris varieties with a selection of beautiful peonies and are offering a selection of potted peonies that can be purchased at the garden during the open garden season in the spring. They proved very popular last year so we decided to offer more this year. We are still carrying a large assortment of potted irises that are available at the garden. We are no longer accepting orders for 2016 but will resume in January.

The iris liked the growing conditions of 2016 as we had excellent growth and size of the rhizomes early on but hot weather starting in July caused some varieties to stop development. As we write this in mid August we are beginning our replant for 2017. Root development has been really good for most all varieties and this bodes well for next year as we have adjusted our plant development and supplementation routines to better fit a changing climate.

We were excited by several awards we received from the American Iris Society in 2015. John's Rum and Coke received an Award of Merit with Chocolatte and Splatter Matters as runner ups. Lesley's Golden Gaga and John's Jazzberry both received an Honorable Mention. Also John's Jazzberry received the Gibson Cup and Teasing Tiger received the Clara B Reese Cup at the AIS Region 14 Spring Convention. They reportedly "stole the show". We very much appreciate the recognition and votes from the AIS judges.

Peonies at the Garden

We are also expanding the quantity and selection of peonies this year. They proved very popular as potted plants last year so we decided to offer more this year . Look for a greater selection of 3-5 gallon pots of both herbaceous varieties and especially the less common and very popular ITOH varieties. The peonies will only be available at the garden during our open garden this spring. Don't miss the oportunity to expand your collection and begin a new one.
