On May 6th, we open our 10-acre display gardens to
the public free of charge. Make a tour of Schreiner's Iris
Gardens one of your springtime traditions. During bloom
season, our display gardens are open from dawn to dusk.
 
In business since 1925, Schreiner's is the nation's largest retail grower of Iris, with 200 acres in nearby fields and
 10 acres of fabulous display gardens open to the public.

In our fields, thousands of Iris will be in bloom, from the deepest black to pure white, fire red toazure blue, 
glowing copper to velvety purple. Solid color blooms
 contrast with multi-hued beauties. The spectacle of row after row, field after field of brilliantly blooming flowers
 is well worth the visit.

Ten acres of our lovely gardens contain 500 named Iris varieties that will
be in bloom this season. Spend a spring morning strolling through the
gardens, bring the family for a picnic lunch (tables are available) or steal
a romantic moment at the end of the day surrounded by blooms and sunset.

Schreiner's Cut Flower Show: May 6 - June 5, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Bring some

Mother's Day.

Gift Shop: May 6 - June 5, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. While visiting our magnificent
