Unexpected pleasure

I ordered my Irises this summer knowing they would arrive for October planting - and I ordered all rebloomers because the area I am putting them is one that we can enjoy spring and fall in our North Carolina home. What I didn't expect was that some of them would bloom THIS fall. The Midsummer NIght's dream has already produced two blooms and there are buds on two others - they are stunning and I couldn't be more pleased. Can't wait for this spring.

So pleased with my order

I received my order last week and wanted to let you know how pleased I was. The iris were packed so carefully and I appreciate the attention you give to making sure the iris arrived undamaged and in great condition. And you tagged each iris with all the important information, which I greatly appreciated. I am sure you will be hearing from me again. Thank you so much and I am so excited to see them bloom in the spring. Let the iris adventure begin!

Impressed!!

WOW I am really impressed! I have bought from other Iris vendors and I just received my first shipment from Schreiner's. The packaging and shipping are exceptional! I was really impressed at how careful and professional it all is. There is, in fact, accountability in that there are actual peoples' names of who pulled it, who packed it, with every item marked off and a certification of it. Every rhizome is BIG and healthy and I love that the labels even have photos so you remember what you ordered! It is so nice to include the informational booklet! It all arrived in a timely fashion ... and overall... just WOW! Great job!

Reblooms

The nine "reblooming" Iris that I purchased last year are absolutely fantastic. There have been Iris blooming in my front gardens since early May. There are two blooming right now and more bloom stalks rising. The plants are so vigorous and productive. One blooming now has one bloom stalk finished. Two more are blooming now and another rising. At least 4 bloom stalks the first year. Amazing. It is a great joy to look out this summer and see at least one, often more spectacular Iris.

Jardin des Plantes 2016 Schreiner's Iris

I recently visited Paris and headed for the Jardin des Plantes (their botanical garden). I was thrilled to find Schreiner's Iris heavily utilized in their Iris Garden section. I spotted 7 different irises - Blue Suede Shoes, Titan's Glory and Starcrest still listed in the catalogue. Now appearing today was Carnival Time, Emperor's Delight, Last Chance and Cranberry Ice. I have been a customer of Schreiner's for over a decade and grown their iris in Southern California as well as on the East Coast. It was great to see that clearly fans of iris have chosen an internationally well-respected source for our iris!!!

I love you!

This year I came all the way from Georgia to see your iris bloom! I have ordered from you for years. You have iris that take by breath away when they bloom. I feel like I have jewels in my garden. They are so pretty, I've bought some for a friend in Mississippi. My son sends bouquets to his girlfriend's Mother, and I give gift certificates from you to friends. I truly love your flowers!

Gorgeous irises.

When my first order arrived last year, I was truly shocked by the size and quality of the rhizomes. I have ordered from many nurseries over my 67 years, and have never been as pleased. They are now starting to bloom and are so beautiful.

Delighted with the Iris

I am delighted with the iris "Dancing In Pink." In spite of my sometimes haphazard, faulty gardening practices, my "Dancing in Pink" plant produced three tall stalks covered with big, gorgeous, lacy, ruffled blooms which lasted long enough for me to do a painting of them. I passionately love the hundreds of iris that I have bought from Schreiner's Iris over the decades. I'm so obsessed with buying iris that I sometimes have planted them where they received inadequate sunlight, or a little too near roses so that high-nitrogen rose fertilizer probably flowed downhill toward them, or they are left for some time with weeds crowding around them, or I fail to water or fertilize them adequately or correctly. A very large number of irises that were bred and sold by Schreiner's have bloomed well and multiplied for decades in my garden in spite of my sometimes terrible gardening practices. I now have a gardener keeping weeds out, and I have had a large area of shrubs removed so that I now have a good sunny place away from roses for my irises.

Beautiful display after only planting last September

After getting my new beds ready, I ordered 42 varieties of Iris from Schreiner's. Words are not enough to express how beautiful the blooms are. I have purple colors that are 8 inches large with 5 large blooms per stem. Amazing to see! My husband and I go out each morning to see what is new in the garden. Yesterday, I ordered 15 more varieties. I am putting in another new bed. I plan to paint each Iris in a series of oil paintings. I will share a painting with you next. Again, thank you Schreiner's for huge, beautiful flowers. Our best to all of you there.

Will only buy irises from Schreiners!

I currently have three irises that I have purchased from Schreiner's. The plants always arrive carefully packaged with complete planting instructions. I purchased Total Recall 15 years ago and I have taken a couple of these irises with me through three relocations. The other two - Rosalie Figge and Again and Again - were ordered only last year and they are now in full bloom. I'm getting ready to move again and will be taking my irises with me and ordering more from Schreiner's at long last I will be in my retirement home and will never have to move again!

Three years

I had many, many Iris from Schreiner's, however, due to moving about the past three years my flowers were neglected. I look forward to digging them for bloom this year if possible. I love the plants I have gotten from Schreiner's and look forward to having a whole new crop this year I hope.

Excited to see "THE BIG SHOW" this spring!!!!

We have had some very early bloomers in a deep purple this season from Schreiner's. I am so looking forward to the 40+ new plants that will bloom this spring and early summer.

As an oil painter, my goal is to take each bloom and paint a series of iris paintings for my friends and family. My style is loose and impressionistic. The idea for this series came to me as I reviewed your catalogue. I had some plants that I took from my mother's home when we shut it down for her to move into a retirement community.

When closing my mother's art studio, I discovered her series of paintings of churches. So, some of my flowers will have a church in them to honor my mother.

All of your plants arrived at my home in great condition. Now, there are very sturdy stems of green in the new bed that we prepared for their arrival. I am a very happy customer. I will send photos when my plants bloom! Thank you, Schreiner's!!

Customer for Life!

Last year a friend found a picture online of an iris and posted it!! I fell in love with that flower! I started searching the Internet over to find out where I could buy some. After a few attempts, I found the same iris at Schreiner's!!! The name of the iris was "Above the clouds."
I placed an order immediately!!! They arrived well packaged, planted them and when they bloomed I couldn't take my eyes off!! I took several pictures of the bloomed Iris and posted on my FB page!
So many of my friends said they haven't seen an iris that big and asked me where I got it! Of course I told them Schreiner's!!
Can't wait to see the blooms again this season!!
I'm a customer for life!! Thank you!!

Superb Quality/Customer Service

I recently placed an order with Schreiner's. It was my first time purchasing from them. I am so impressed with the entire process...from the design and detail of the website, friendly/knowledgeable/helpful customer service (when I called with questions) and the outstanding quality of the product. I ordered 50 (shh, don't tell my husband) bearded iris. They were freshly dug, well-formed and large! I am very pleased with my order and will be placing more orders in the future. Thank You

Received My Order

Got my order back at the end of July. Very healthy looking rhizomes. I was also very pleased that there were pictures of the blooms on the attached tags. That makes planting much easier when you don't have to refer back to the catalog to make sure you have the colors you wanted next to each other. This was my first order from you and if they are as vigorous in May as I think they will be I will be very pleased.

Schreiner's Iris in containers

5 of my first 7 Schreiner's tall bearded iris growing in 5-gallon containers on my deck put on quite the show this year even if Play With Fire and Ocelot did not bloom...they will next year. Am so satisfied with the quality of the rhizomes and the fantastic selection you offer. Am going to order a Dwarf collection this fall and am so looking forward to seeing them bloom along side their big brothers! Thank you Schreiner's for making my deck a bright and lovely place to sit in the sun and admire my gorgeous iris!

Best Garden Purchase Ever

Last year I bought iris from you for the first time. I was still waiting on some locally grown iris to bloom after 2 years, but I knew if I kept at it, eventually I'd get blooms. When your iris arrived last summer it was immediately evident that they were bigger and more hefty than any I'd bought locally. Sure enough, this spring your iris were up early and strong. I had a fantastic display of spring color from last year's planting while I'm still waiting for other inferior plants to bloom for the first time. I am a devoted customer now and will never buy any where else! Thank you for a beautiful garden. It's June 24th and at 6700' elevation in Colorado, I still have blooms opening.
