Garden Talk


Welcome to Iris4u Garden

"And suddenly you know it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."

- Meister Eckhart


Welcome to Iris4u Garden!

Our garden is slowly transitioning from winter hibernation into activity.  With longer warm hours, color is quietly and secretly forming inside each rhizome.  Anticipation of spring's arrival is high!

Our online shop has opened its doors for the new 2014 Season.  You may notice a few changes and a much slimmer catalog, (varieties A-M), than years past.  Due to our very dry and eratic winter, many of our plants have remained small and therefore we've decided that these plants will not be suitable for purchase this year.

For more details about our garden status and to hear what else is new, take a minute to have  A Word with Iris Bob or visit our facebook page, Iris4u Iris Garden.


Old Man Winter

We are a family operated iris garden in Denver, Colorado.  Iris Bob, as he is affectionately known to many, grows and sells approximately 1000 newer Tall Bearded Iris varieties in the heart of the Mile High City. 

As a rising hybridizer for Tall Bearded Iris, he has approximately 10,000 seedlings under evaluation at any given time from previous years to current seedlings still in pots waiting to germinate.   Read More




Helpful advice for planting your Iris:

Minimum of 6 hours of sunshine per day. 

Good drainage

Plant 7-12in apart.

Divide every 3 to 4 years.

Fertilize late summer with a LOW nitrogen fertilizer, 14-14-14 (or something similar).

Fertilize in the spring with a high phosphorous fertilizer, 0-48-0 (triple super phosphate for root development).

Don’t overwater.

Don’t plant too deep, just below the surface of the ground.  

Remove dead brown foliage and bloom-stalks when last flower wilts.
