I try to get recommendations before I buy plants on line. Which iris growers are you happy with? I've read that Superstition Iris Gardens are great, but they don't have a website. Another good grower only posts on Facebook. I'd sure like to hear from you if you know of a grower with an on-line catalog, has good customer service, and sends nice root stock? Thanks much!

www.bluejiris.com I bought from them last year and all of the bulbs give me blooms this year. I don't know if they are the best but their prices are very reasonable.

I have used Aitkens on this coast and extremely happy with accuracy and quality.

BlueJ - accurate, excellent prices

Can't remember the others but this link has reliable growers. You may benefit from ordering from a company nearer you as their iris are acclimated to your winters as opposed to Calif. growers.

Here is a link that might be useful: http://www.irises.org/Resources/Commercial_Ref.html

Last year I ordered from Schreiner's. I have the biggest iris plants I've ever seen!!! I swear they grew and doubled over the winter. The dwarf I ordered from there already bloomed and put on a good show. I order some other irises from them for gifts and no one has been disappointed.

Well, I haven't personally ordered from Winterberry, but they're highly regarded and in your vicinity, I think. Their website is great (http://winterberryirises.com/), but it's not an online catalog. $5 gets your their full catalog, which I'm told is really extensive.

Malevil Irises has closed due to the drought they are experiencing in that part of Texas. Dana just did the judges training for Region 7 and we talked about that. I was truly sadden to hear it.
I like Rocky Top Garden in Tennessee. He has a catalog on line, but you still have to snail mail the order.There is not a shopping cart option. But great person to deal with.

You can,t beat Shreiners . They are spendy but worth it. I have bought from them for the last 8 years . I have been very happy every year.

RE: Best Iris Growers

I vote for "Schreiners". Always happy. I order elsewhere only if I'm looking for something specific that they don't carry that particular year.

I have ordered from Iris City gardens online and have gotten very good product and good service.

RE: Best Iris Growers

Thanks to all of you for your input. I decided on Schreiner's and ordered some Siberian iris for a wet area near a ditch in our front yard. Their prices are high, but Siberian iris seem to spread well so I figure on splitting them in a couple of years. Happy gardening.
