I could say I have no idea what it’s like to love something so much you devote your life to it but I can’t. Combining a career with a genuine passion is a wonderful to spend a life. Started as a family business in 1925, Schreiner’s Iris Gardens has grown from a hobby to the largest grower of iris in the country.
Internationally recognized as the best iris hybridizers in the world, Schreiner’s sells iris online as well as at their ten acre display garden. To help name their new hybrids, they hold an annual naming contest. How fun is that? Open to the public every year in early May, Schreiner’s is a top garden destination for iris lovers across Oregon. Every rhizome is hand dug and guaranteed to be winter hardy and pest- free. For every $50 you spend, you’re gifted a free iris. Cruising their amazing online catalog is a wonderful way to spend a winter evening.
