Garden Welcome

Announcement: Orders are no longer being taken for the 2017 shipping season. Shipping for orders has begun and will continue through August. Thanks to all who ordered and made this a very successful season.

Welcome to our 2017 garden website. Orders are now being taken for July-August delivery. There are 476 varieties with 25 new iris varieties for this year while also deleting some of the older varieties. 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. Due to the popularity of peonies we have expanded the number of varieties offered as well as the number of each variety available. We are still carrying a large assortment of potted irises that are available at the garden. Orders for the bare root irises that are shipped in July and August can be placed on the website or by mail through June 30,2017.

Growth for the irises was very good in 2016 and we anticipate similiar growth this year. This year seems to be more on the colder side and we are hopeful that the rainfall amounts will be sufficient to end our drought conditions. As this is written in mid January we are at or above seasonal averages with more rain on the way. We were able to keep enough moisture to the plants in 2016 otherwise they would have gone semi-dormant during the summer growing season.

We were excited by several awards we received from the American Iris Society in 2016. Spice Trader was a runner up for the John C. Wister Medal. Splatter Matters received an Award of Merit while Teasing Tiger and French Lavender were runners up for the Award of Merit. Hearts on Fire received an Honourable Mention while Cherokee Blaze, Double Chocolate and Planet Hollywood were runner ups. Also John's Jazzberry received the Gibson Cup and Hearts on Fire received the Clara B Reese Cup from Region 14 of the American Iris Society. Thanks to all the judges who voted for them.

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. Check out the peony page on the website for pictures of most of the varieties we have available. Don't miss the oportunity to expand your collection and begin a new one.

Garden Status

Update July 1, 2017
The display garden is closed for visitors for this season. Many thanks to all who came to enjoy the bloom with us - the "locals" as well as the many out of state visitors. Orders are no longer being accepted for this year. If you missed ordering and would like to be notified when we begin taking orders for 2018 in January just send us an email to add your name to our "notification list".

The peonies have been a highlight for many this year. Potted peonies are available only during the open garden times listed here as we do not ship peonies as we do the bare root irises.
