Over the years we have been selecting for show quality cut blooms and plants that are more disease resistant for the Columbia River Gorge (USA Zone 8) located in Washington and Oregon States, USA.

Besides the iris fields, the gardens are open for your enjoyment.

Chad has been growing and hybridizing Iris ensata (Japanese iris, Hanashobu) for over 35 years. Currently he has also started to work with a closely related iris: Iris laevigata (Kakitsubata in Japan) the true water iris of Asia, and a new Species-Cross hybrid involving Iris ensata called “Pseudata”. These plants of the iris family are very well suited growing near water, some in the water as pond plants, in rain gardens, as well as patio containers. Please check out our Culture and Care pages.

Chad is a member of the American Iris Society and several sub-chapters of that society. He serves as a master garden judge, and is an active member of the Greater Portland Iris Society of Oregon.

Our peak iris bloom is extended over a four month period: April to July. You, your family, and the general public are invited to visit the gardens. Located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. We are only a 25 minute drive from the Portland, Oregon airport.  Garden hours, directions and a map to the farm.
