BAYOU GYPSY


2014 is our 20th year
Welcome to Iris City Gardens. We grow Louisiana iris and a number of virginica, pseudacorus, versicolor, laevigata, other species and species crosses. We also have many antique and newer bearded iris and never-rust Garden Markers to identify your plants. We ship nation-wide and sell potted iris, daylilies, peonies, water lilies and other perennial plants here at the nursery.

We no longer print and mail a catalog. Rising printing and postage costs are partly to blame, but there is simply no comparison between a printed catalog and the photography on this web site. The printed catalog had only about 10% of the photos that are available on this site and the quality of those printed photos left much to be desired. If you're somewhat old fashioned, like we are, and want something to hold in your hand and mark up you can Download the entire catalog in Adobe Acrobat format (without pictures) and print it out. It's not a very large file and has the same text that would have been in a printed catalog. PLEASE look to the website listings for availability. We try to keep these pages updated for sold-out items but we don't update the pdf file.

We don't have online ordering, but you can print out an Order Form, make your selections and mail us the form, fax it to 800-934-4747 or call your order in to 800-934-4747. (And next to growing iris, we like best to talk about them.) You can also Email your order in to us

DARK DUDE

This year we are introducing two new Louisianas and one new bearded iris. One Louisiana iris, HECTOR DUHON, is from the DeBaillon Award winning hybridizer Dorman Haymon. The other Louisiana, ROOSTER, is our first introduction from Ron Betzer. Two of Ron's recent introductions (both listed in our catalog) CALA and DARK DUDE have both earned Honorabile Mention awards recently. Our new bearded iris LEMON RIPPLE is the first introduction from our friend Linda Mann. All can be seen at 2014 Introductions page and should be considered for your iris collection.

This catalog lists approximately 500 varieties of iris, including many not listed in our 2013 catalog. We now grow over 1,300 different plants including over 900 iris, 250 daylilies, 130 peonies and many other perennials. We offer garden sales of pond plants, including water lilies, and potted varieties of iris, daylilies, peonies and other perennials for Spring planting. Otherwise, we ship bare-root bearded iris beginning mid-July and beardless iris starting in September.

Our gardening year will begin with a booth at the annual Nashville Lawn and Garden Show, a plant lovers paradise in early March, coming just in time to save you from the winter blahs. This year it will be held February 27 through March 2 and it's well worth a long drive to attend. There are lots of vendors selling great products and the gardens just have to be seen to be believed.

In 2014 our gardens will be open for visitors Wednesday through Sunday, 9 am until 4 pm (Central) from April 16 to June 29. (Other dates by appointment.) Click here for directions. We're about 40 miles southwest of Nashville. Come see us!
