Irises are live plants (not bulbs) which should be planted in
late summer or early autumn. They need to be in the ground at least six to eight
weeks prior to the first killing frost in your area. Do not put irises in the
refrigerator and do not leave them out of the ground over two weeks.
We hand dig and tag your new irises. Orders are
usually shipped by U.S. Mail within two days of digging. All orders will be
shipped (no pick up orders). Unfortunately, shipping costs continue to increase.
NOTE: If you will be out of town
during the time your order is due to arrive, please let us know in advance so we
can adjust our schedule to better serve you.
Early Summer Shipments
Customers in northern states, high-altitude states, and
mid-Atlantic states will receive their irises between mid-July and mid-August.
Late Summer Shipments
Other states will receive their irises
between mid-August and mid-September which is the ideal time to plant or
transplant irises in hot southern soil.
