Rose Garden Irises

Submitted March 6, 2014 at 11:34 AM

Color is popping up all over the Garden, from the earliest Daffodils in the Four Seasons Garden, the Snowdrops in the Medicinal Garden and Floral Walk, to the many cultivars and colors of Iris in the Rose Garden.

Right now for the next week or two is the best time to see the spring Irises before they fade and give way to the Daffodils.

These aren't even examples of all we have! There are different cultivars opening up every day, so come back often so you don't miss a single one.
