FULL BLOOM SHOULD BE THIS Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday due to the extreme heat. Peak bloom will be over for the Memorial Day weekend.

The garden will open to visitors MAY 12th. We will be open everyday from 12pm to 6pm.  Bring your bug spray. The gnats are very plentiful again this year. If you would like to visit the garden earlier or later in the day please call 301-988-6175 to make an appointment

We are taking orders for the 2017 growing season. Your order will be processed and shipped in the order it was received. Shipping will begin the latter part of July into early August unless you specify another shipping date. I will inventory your order to see if the irises you specifically want are available and let you know by email once I can get to work in the garden. Most of  my sales are to garden visitors. You should order before bloom season as I sell out of many during that time period.

Thank You




What’s Doing in the Garden

Our new online iris store is live. Go to our Shop page, and you’ll see photos of literally hundreds of irises you can choose from. Click an iris’s photo, and you can read more about it – and see listings and photos of related varieties. You can search for irises by name, by color, by hybridizer, by the year they were first introduced, by price range. You can even see which irises are the most popular, which ones our customers rate most highly, and which are the very newest. And once you’ve made your selections, our new shopping cart will let you pay by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express credit card or gift card – or by Paypal electronic funds transfer.
