    We invite everyone to visit our Family IRIS gardens during bloom season, which is usually about April in our weather zone, 4b.  Our family grows and digs our own rhizomes, and we love to offer our customers healthy rhizomes at low prices (see above for our free bonus iris offers, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and even 50% discounts!). We also GUARANTEE our iris to be true to name (see below).  We raise mostly TB (Tall-bearded) iris, but also have AB (Aril-bred), BB (Border Bearded), & IB (Intermediate Bearded) iris (and a few SDBs: Standard Dwarf Bearded iris).  We especially love iris that are luminatas, broken colors, variegated foliage, caterpillar beards, flatties, and iris with large flounces (Space Agers). We've also had good luck with iris that re-bloom here.  We grow close to 4,000 named iris varieties.


    You can call ahead to check exact iris bloom dates, but no appointment is needed.  Drive on in from dawn to dark any day of the week, and bring your cameras!

Our Guarantee:

   We guarantee our iris to be true to name.  To accomplish this we promise to go to great lengths to PREVENT any errors being sent to you.  We are undergoing an extensive double-checking process where we are photographing all our blooms this year and comparing them to their descriptions.  We have also developed a tracking system where we tag each rhizome as soon as it is dug.   We strive for "Blue J True" quality assurance and customer satisfaction!


Large Volume Orders:

     The A-Z Catalog is marked with a $5.00 price for those varieties we can fill large volume orders with (approx. 25 or more, for example...however, as the year progresses, some may have been already sold).  This is also in indication then, of varieties that are vigorous growers in our zone 4b climate.
