Can anyone recommend a NY or Northeast PA Iris farm to visit? I enjoyed touring some day lily farms last year and would like to do the same thing again this year.

Stoney Creek Iris is just North of Harrisburg. It is not near NY by any stretch of the imagination (nor is it East; it would be considered central or even south/central).

Josh -- you might consider joining the Iris Lovers group on Facebook, and posting that question there. They have a wide array of list members from all over the country (world, actually) and I'll bet that someone will know of an Iris garden or two in your area. Smiling

yes, I have heard of them, but didn't know their website. He hybridizes Siberian irises as you can see.
