About Us

We exclusively grow and distribute hybrid Louisiana Irises. We grow named iris varieties registered with the American Iris Society. We market either by bloom color or by registered variety. We also grow irises by color, mixing registered and non-registered irises by the color of the bloom. Purchase shades of white, red, wine, light blue, dark blue, light purple, and dark purple. Plants are shipped in the continental U.S., bare-rooted with about 2 to 6 inches of foliage. All plants are naturally grown and are not tissue culture seedlings.
