"And suddenly you know it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."
- Meister Eckhart
Welcome to Iris4u Garden's 2013 Season! 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
Thank you to all our iris fans who have visited us. It is a pleasure seeing all the familiar as well as new faces in our garden each year! We look forward to seeing you this flower season!
Our garden has opened again, however, due to the extreme weather conditions we've been experiencing this spring we are still a "Sea of Green". We anticipate a smaller scale Peak Bloom approximately the second week of June. Therefore, please call us at 303-789-4747 to check the status of flower development before you make the trip out to visit us!
Just a taste of what the new season has in store for you!
Helpful advice for planting your Iris:
Minimum of 6 hours of sunshine per day.
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 plant too deep, just below the surface of the ground.
Remove dead brown foliage and bloom-stalks when last flower wilts.
