@irisarian , Lucy, may be able to help with this question.

Based on what I have heard I do not think they will be open this year.

Still no response from them. They have about 30 irises on their site that I would love to add to my show beds.

Hippie ~ Maybe someone knows, but I don't think that they are in business anymore...but if they have a website open, they should have responded to you.

As I mentioned earlier, the son, Kelly, said they were winding down the business. I haven't been able to reach him for months. If their site opens in a couple of months (many older sites never opened this early) then good, but I would not count on it at this point. If there are any iris you absolutely must have and can't wait I would definitely start looking at other vendors.

I agree

Sad to see them close. I will post a list of what I'm looking for and maybe someone can help me out.

I agree with Leslie. They did not sell irises last year and Kelly has taken a full time position doing something he loves. In the future someone may take over their iris gardens and then several of us will be in line to place an order. At this point the site does not read or respond to emails.
