Display Gardens

Display Gardens

If you are interested in seeing historic irises growing in a garden setting we have put together a list of both public and private gardens where historic irises can be found. Most are in the United States, some are in Canada and Europe. If the garden has a website, the garden name is linked to the website. The contact email address for the garden is linked to the contact name, if available.

Contact Display Garden Chairperson: Kate Brewitt for more details on how to participate in the Display Garden program.
