About Ordering 

We are a mail order iris farm for the continental United States including Alaska, using US Postal Priority Mail with guaranteed three day service.

To place an order, please print our 2020 Order Form  send with check or money order.

Every order is individually hand dug and labeled. Plants may not bloom the first year not because of their size, but because of the transplant shock. All orders are accepted subject to the availability of stock.

Shipping and handling fees for continental U.S. and Alaska only. For international orders, please contact Aitken’s Salmon Creek Garden in Vancouver, Washington.

We ship from August through September at the first of the week so that your order will be ready for you to plant on the weekend. Try not to request a date when your temperatures will be above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, but at least a month or more before your first frost.


All plants are freshly dug, individually labeled and healthy when shipped. The nursery is inspected by the State of Washington annually, and certified to be disease free. If there are any problems, please notify us within 10 days of receipt of shipment and we will replace any plants that you are not happy with. We can not accept responsibility for plants lost due to climate or garden conditions.

Substitution and Refunds

Supplies of plants are limited to stock. Orders are processed in the order received. Please order early and circle yes, no, or refund. Your check or money order must be sent with your order.


Plants are shipped bare root. Bearded iris are cleaned and dry cured before packing. Beardless are cleaned and wet packed in a poly bag with a water polymer. All plants are individually labeled. Along with a copy of your order, you will receive a culture and care sheet.

Bonus and Wholesale

We all like to receive “Free Plants”. However, since we do not know what irises are already in your garden, or what your garden plans are. We would like to offer you a monetary bonus with your order.

  • Orders of $600 to $999 deduct 10%.
  • Orders of $1,000 up deduct 15%.

These deductions are to be taken prior to figuring the shipping and handling fees.
