Shipping charges for both Bearded and Beardless Iris, Books and Catalogs are as follows:

We use UPS Ground or USPS for our Standard Shipping on Iris orders. Always include a physical delivery address in your order to ensure proper delivery. Please notify us if you require delivery to a postal box instead.

We begin shipping Bearded Iris mid-July. We hand dig the orders within two weeks upon receipt of the order. Please allow up to two weeks from the date you place your order for it to ship. If you would prefer to receive your Iris at a certain time in the summer (for example, to avoid extremely hot weather, or because of a vacation schedule, etc.), you may choose the month in which you prefer to receive your order, e.g. July, August or September. Please note that your preference is a guideline for us. We will do our best to satisfy your request, but we cannot guarantee a specific ship date. 

Our shipping season begins mid-July for Bearded Iris, and mid-August for Beardless Iris. For most of the United States, we ship through the end of September. We will post our end of shipping cut-off dates on our website as we approach the end of our season. Click here to view the map.

Books, catalogs and fertilizer are shipped year round while supplies last.

What are the shipping charges on orders shipped outside the United States?

We do export Iris overseas, but these shipments also require additional expenses for shipping and inspection. Please contact Alison, at, if you're interested in placing an overseas order, for terms that are specific to your country. Our minimum overseas order is $100.00.

Shipping overseas has recently become more erratic because of varying interpretations of regulations in different countries. Therefore it is difficult for us to ensure that your parcel of Iris will be delivered. Because of this, Schreiner's Iris Gardens will no longer be responsible for and will not make reimbursement or replacement for parcels delayed, destroyed or returned to us without legitimate cause. If it is our error that causes the problem, we will take full responsibility for it and take the necessary steps to make it right.

When will you ship my Iris?

Our shipping seasons runs from mid-July through late September. You may request that your Iris be shipped before or after a certain date. Although we make every attempt to satisfy these requests, we reserve the right to make adjustments. Please note that plant orders ship from our farm approximately two weeks after we receive the order. Shipping via ground carrier can take 7 to 10 days for delivery.
