Irises

We have a selection of Irises available. Some are potted up, others in clumps in the garden which can be dug up and sold safely through the season. We have a nice selection of bearded Irises in various sizes and colours, also Louisianas and some Japanese.

All Irises are $6.50 each or 3 for $15 or we have some large sized plants @ $8 ea or 2 for $15  It’s a mix and match situation…your choice or we can send a selection. No guarantees of colour from the Japanese this season as I didn’t label them last season….. The Louisianas can also be a bit tricky as they get about the place (not called walking Irises for nothing) and they are all planted in the same area in the garden (dank spot behind the water tank with very limited sun…they flowered magnificently!)
