This is a photo of Uprising, that I got from you last year. This spring, one rhizome sent up FIVE bloom stalks!!
Sunrise Splendor arrived very early in August. It was planted about 3 week's later. A freeze was predicted for nights, the weekend of October 23rd 24th, and 25th . One bloom stalk stood out in the iris bed, Sunrise Splendor's. No bloom showed real color, perhaps due to Sunrise Splendor's coloration. I cut it and put it in water in the house. Next morning it was beginning to unfurl. Next day. it was in nearly full bloom. That bloom has had it's turn and another graces the table. Its shape and proportions are my favorite. The placing and configuration of the colors is lovely beyond description. I think of it as The Promise. It is the promise for next spring. Thanks, and P.S. Its growing conditions at your garden were superb for it to have bloomed this fall. Favorite configuration, proportions, placement of colors. Thanks, Mary Morrison
Wow! Iím absolutely over the moon about my iris rhizomes I received from you in mid August. I ordered a reblooming variety called Earl of Essex and 3 of the 8 plants I ordered are just about ready to bloom. One has 4 buds. Who knew! Based on the exceptional quality of the iris rhizomes I ordered daylilies a few days later, a variety called Tempt Me. Theyíve sent up a couple of shoots as well so Iím going to get a bloom or two before frost. Iím not sure what kind of fairy dust youíre sprinkling but it seems to be working. Thank you for giving me such unexpected pleasure in this uncertain time of COVID. Eleanor McGrath
Had a vert tough gardening year but my daylily collection was fine. My irises also seem to be doing great. Please continue with your great plants. Been a long time customer who have retired recently.
My daylily order was shipped on 9-14-20. I received my plants on 9-18-20. I ordered 5 different varieties (one was for 2). My order came in beautiful. Very large healthy plants. I was surprised with two bonus plants. I had just gotten my bed ready to plant so I planted that day. One of the bonus plants has sent up a bloom scape. I am so excited to have blooms in Oct. I live in Texas and we have had a few nights of colder than normal temps. I highly recommend buying daylilys from Schreiner's Gardens. Looks like I need to make more daylily beds so I can order again.
I am extravagantly pleased by the tall bearded iris plants you sent me in August, 2020.: fresh-looking plants, green fans, and large, rhizomes, with lots of little rootlets. Fast forward to OCT 2020: the plants are well established, and the center fan of each plant has grown several inches. I have never received a better shipment of plants in 40+ years of gardening. You have earned my trust and loyalty as a customer.
I will order irises from Schriener's Iris Gardens before I consider ordering from any other company. The size and health of the plants exceeds other similar vendors. Happy with my purchases!
My daylilies arrived today. I am so pleased! They are such nice, big, healthy looking plants. I can't wait to see them in bloom. Thank You! I will definitely order again once I make more garden space.
After deciding to plant Iris in our yard after a 15 year hiatus, I found your site and was amazed at your huge selection of not only Iris, but Daylillies as well. After much research, I placed an order with you and I was very pleased with the way my rhizomes were packaged and shipped. I had to go back and order another group of Daylilies. I will definitely order from you good folks again next year, I've already placed some choices that were sold out in my wish list. Regards, Lee Cox
IN THE PAST, I have shied away from mail order plants because they are disappointingly small and frequently don't make it through the first season. NOT SO with Schreiner's. I have now ordered several plants with well developed roots and robust stalks, not to mention beautiful varieties that I cannot find locally. From now on, Schreiner's will be my only online order source. Also...excellent customer service. I am impressed!
I am impressed with my Daylily and Iris shipments. Big healthy divisions exploded to life. After a few weeks daylillies growing well and multiplying, some are blooming already throwing up multiple scapes. I bought mostly reblooming daylillies so I could enjoy them for a prolonged season. Iris rhizomes were huge and growing very well in just a few days from planting. Can't wait till spring. Can't wait for my next trip to Oregon during blooming season. I will be bringing my camera!
This year I purchased my first 6 daylilies from you. Two were shipped early in July and are doing well and growing. The second four were shipped later. Two of these have already flowered (Coconut Grove and today She Can Tango) and a third is about to! I never thought I would see them until next year or so. Here is She Can Tango in all her glory.
I am new this spring to mail order gardening. I wanted some iris rhizomes for fall planting and I placed my first small order with Schreinerís They arrived beautifully packed and labeled and the plants are of superior quality. I canít wait for bloom in the spring. As an experiment, I placed two small orders with competitors and was very disappointed with the quality; poorly packed and labeled and the rhizomes were dry and a couple were rotted. I re-ordered from Schreinerís last week and am awaiting the box. The enclosed booklet about iris cultivation is a real plus. I am a fan!
This time I ordered daylilies. I was impressed with the size and condition of the plants. I got them in the ground right away, and they have already started blooming. I couldn't believe it we have been having a very hot, dry summer here. Just beautiful!!
I received several daylilies about a month ago. The plants were very large and healthy. The plants were 3 to 6 fans each. Two of the plants are getting ready to bloom after being in the ground for less than one month. My second order just went in the ground today, cant wait to see if they grow as quickly. Will definitely order more next year!
Wow... I planted my Iris about 3 weeks ago and two are already to bloom. I have never seen such healthy rhizomes from a mail order place. Thank you
Order#2011685 and 2020017 I am very disappointed in the size and condition of what I received one of mine cost $24.00 and it was small with very little root. I will not order again.
I have dealt with a goodly number of Iris companies. But I have to say, the tubers I got from Schreiner's are the largest and healthiest ever. Thank you. We got them in the ground minutes after they arrived. I have been wanting the Dracula's Kiss Iris for a while. Now I have two very nice settings.
What a joy to shop for top quality iris rhizomes. From the first hello to place an order to receiving my order, nothing but friendly, professional service. The rhizomes were nothing short of first quality. That service doesn't end there. Next spring a new experience of that professionalism will blossom out in a rainbow of colors. Thank you, Schreiner's!
I have never grown Iris. We purchased 48 bulbs and planted them per the Schreiner's planting video. All the Iris arrived in great shape. We planted them in the newly prepared beds as recommended. One month later all of the bulbs are showing significant leaf growth. The roots are digging in and each seems to have adjusted to their new home with no casualties. I cannot wait to see the blooms next Spring. Thanks to Schreiner's from an Iris rookie!
Thank you so much for replacing this beautiful daylily that I lost. Out of the 20 daylilies i ordered this summer, 9 have scaped, five have bloomed. Thank you so much for sending such beautiful, healthy plants. I gladly recommend your gardens.
I received this 3 1/2 weeks ago and to my surprise (about 2 weeks ago) I noticed it was going to bloom. It opened today. This is Sugar Blues. I have another iris that is just about ready to bloom. I have been a customer for a long time and have never been unhappy with the quality of the irises.
I have ordered Iris from Schreiner's several times, the first time about 8 years ago. Again, I was excited when I opened my recent order because they are the healthiest rhizomes ever, and are nicely tagged. I am still enjoying my "old" Iris purchases very much. Schreiner's Iris are ALWAYS true to color as advertised. One of my favorites - Dancing in Pink
Iíve placed about six orders with Schreinerís since Spring 2020. I received my first shipment late July. I live in Knoxville, Tennessee and it was 98 degrees when it arrived. I was expecting everything in September. Thankfully, my beds were ready, but I was still shocked they came in. I called Schreinerís and asked them to hold my other orders until September. They explained that I would risk loosing my place in line and I may not get my full order. So I told them not to change. This conversation took place before I opened the box! I opened the box and was amazed!!! They shipped me beautiful, healthy, large rhizomes and they included a growing guide and everything was labeled to perfection. All top quality! I received my second order today and was equally impressed and very pleased. Schreinerís is now my #1 plant source! Their quality, selection, pricing, professionalism and knowledge is unmatched. I am a very happy repeat customer. Schreinerís sorry about that phone call! You taught me a lesson! ☺️
I just received my first Schreiner's order. They look very healthy. I really appreciate the quality tag on each, waterproof, with the color photo of a bloom and the average height. Looking forward to spring!
The daylilies that I ordered and planted last year have been very satisfying. I've enjoyed them so much that I placed two more orders this year. Both orders are planted and are green and growing. I'm certain I will want some more next year. I'm very very pleased and anticipate bloom next summer.
I received my Iris shipment this morning. Thank you so much again. If anyone is considering on whether to buy from Schreiners, what are you waiting for? They have the best Iris selection and Daylily selection I have ever seen, and their prices are great also. They also have the most friendly staff I have ever dealt with, and they are so friendly and helpful and generous. What more could anyone ask for? Schreiner's are above and beyond any other company that I have dealt with. I have ordered from dozens of other companies, not one stands up to Schreiner's in every area. Check out their Iris and daylilies, you won't be sorry. Take some home with you, just as I did. Thank you so very much again. Terry W., Arizona. Customer for LIFE!
I remember my grandmother weeding her quarter acre of Iris' in her bare feet. In June, the site was unforgettable. Through the use of your product, I am trying to continue this Comstock family tradition. So far, my garden is far from that large but I have the land to start. Your rhizomes are the healthiest I have EVER experienced. If they are planted soon enough, they will even bloom that season. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos to share how scrumptious the blooms that were produced by these rhizomes. Now I wish I did. All I know is that the only compliments I received were on a Schreiner's plant. I will use no other company to continue my dream. Pam Comstock of Cadillac, Michigan
The daylilies I ordered and planted last fall are starting to bloom. Every morning is a new adventure as I go out first thing to see what has opened. I couldn't be more pleased. I have another order coming and may order more if I can get the bed ready. I've looked at several other grower/suppliers and always come back here. Beautiful daylilies, great plants, generous bonuses. Why shop elsewhere?
I was really stunned when My Iris's bloomed the first year planted. They were so gorgeous. Only one did not bloom and I am sure it will bloom next year.
