After reading that Lone Star Iris Gardens is no longer in business I
felt a little shudder. This may be because I was just about to announce
the opening of our website [rainbowfarms.net].
Please drop by our site and let me know what ya'll think. We are proud
of our work, but we really love comments, especially from my friends on

elcome to our world of iris. We began our venture
down the iris path in 1994. Numerous Sunday afternoon
visits to our Grandpa's farm brought our attention to
Grandma's "flags". Pinks, whites, blues, many
of them forgotten amid the weeds and briars. As a favor
to Grandma and the iris we made new beds and rescued
hundreds. To spice up the beds we decided to add a few
varieties of more modern origin. One thing led to another
and soon enough we were growing not just hundreds, but
thousands. This past May we purchased our own farm
(luckily it is across the road from Grandma's). The
transition to our new place has been difficult but
satisfying. We now have more than 25,000 iris happily
growing and blooming.
This web page is the start of another journey for us.
The remarkable iris has been overlooked as a wonderful
addition to your garden for too long. By the end of your
trip through our world we're sure you'll be ready to
start your own iris garden.
