Welcome to Iris City Gardens



 Page 1 of 5

Here are some of our favorite bearded iris--old and new. A number of the antiques were in Macey's grandfather's catalog in 1940 and for the most part we have used his descriptions.

The winter of 2014 was exceptionally tough on our newly transplanted beardeds and we are having to mark many of them SOLD OUT for this year. They should mostly be available again in 2015.
