Come! Join us as we bask in the glory that is acres of blooming Iris, fields of Colorado Columbines and Peonies, Asiatic and Oriental Lilies, sprinklings of poppies, shrub roses, and more! In addition to the Tall Bearded Iris being available for sale, we offer bedding plants of hard to find hearty heirloom seed varieties….from reseeding Petunias, Heirloom Hollyhocks, Asters, Colorado Columbines, and Flanders Poppies. The heirloom seed is also offered as well as Asiatic and Oriental Lily bulbs and Peony plants.
Want to know more about Irises, play in the dirt and get the first look at the 2018 crop? Stay two or more nights at Blue Lake Ranch from Sunday, June 10th to Friday, June 15th, and we’ll let you participate and learn about the selection, digging and dividing of these gorgeous plants. You’ll be rewarded with a 10% discount on your room and $50 worth of Iris for each day you help. There’s a lot to do in Durango, so we won’t keep you busy all day. And if you want to come and just observe the process, you’ll still get a 10% discount if you mention the IRIS SPECIAL. Can’t come the week before the Sale? Come the week after and we’ll give you the same offer. You can help us “plant back” special Iris and bedding plants and take home both bedding plants and Iris. This is a great week to experience the gardens!
