Welcome to Mt Pleasant Iris Farm, home of Chad Harris and Dale Grams, as well as the site of a National Display Garden of Japanese Iris.
Specializing in wet-land-loving iris of Asia, we also grow and offer for your landscape other iris species and garden test many newer bearded iris that require less water.
Please check out our new 2013 Introductions, as well as our updated catalog with lots of new entries and photos!
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.
Chad has been growing and hybridizing Iris ensata (Japanese iris, Hanashobu) for over 25 years. Currently he has also started to work with a closely related iris: Iris laevigata (Kakitsubata in Japan) the true water iris of Japan. These two plants of the iris family are very well suited growing near water, in rain gardens, as well as 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. Click here to see garden hours, directions and a map to the farm.
