Schreiner's is just 10 miles from my house. I recently attended a private event at one of the Schreiner family homes. The display gardens and surrounding fields are amazing!!!

Here are some pics from the display gardens. Every iris they offer is planted in the display gardens, and labeled with the 2013 cost of a rhizome. It really is incredible. They interplant many other perennials (columbine, thalictrum, lupine, and eremerus) that bloom at the same time, so the color is just amazing.

I loved the incredible height of these eremerus between the irises:

And last but not least, as guests of the party---we were asked to take as many cut irises home as we wanted. My friend took 3 buckets full!

That you for those wonderful pictures Stephanie. I moved to Springfield this past Fall and have been meaning to make a drive up to look at their gardens but haven't made it yet.

Gorgeous! It must be a lot of work keeping a place like that in shape even if it involves a lot of spraying or something. In some of those field shots I can't even see a single weed!

Thanks for sharing! Smiling

Wonderful!

I have purchased from them and knew they hosted an open garden but live way too far away to visit.
Your pictures are the closest to a visit I will ever get. Thank you! nodding
