Field Trip to Shreiner's Iris Farm
Yesterday we made a trip to the Shreiner's Iris Farm in Oregon. These are some of the photos.
Grown for preparation of rhizomes for sale and shipping. Row upon row, beautiful irises as far as I can see.
Standing in the field.
Bought these 2, one as a replacement for American Classic, that I seem to have lost, and the other, Kissed By The Sun, is new to me. I will plant them in one of the beds I'm preparing for improved iris growth.
