The Iris Garden




champagne-elegance-tall-bearded-jpg.jpg
The Iris Garden
in the Springfield Botanical Gardens is nothing less than a genuine marvel to behold, a literal wonder of color and texture.
Today it displays, incredibly, some 500 plants in 200 varieties of Japanese, Dutch, Siberian, Louisiana, and tall-bearded and short-bearded border irises. All can be seen in glorious peak bloom in May and June.
     Like many of the Springfield Botanical Gardens, the Iris Garden was designed by Dr. Bill Roston. Its first blooming season was in 2006, and today it's maintained and improved by the Iris Society of the Ozarks.
      We hope you enjoy this brief tour of the garden and that you'll be able to see it yourself in person. The Springfield Botanical Gardens and the Botanical Center are located at 2400 South Scenic in Springfield, Missouri.
