When will my order ship?
Irises are shipped in August. Dependent upon your zone, it is possible to ship as late as October or November.
Please note: Irises are not shipped in the Spring because they are still growing. Most of the iris plant's above ground development occurs during early spring growth until the bloom is complete. The iris plant's underground development begins immediately after the bloom is complete and for the eight weeks following bloom completion. This is the period when the iris rhizome increases its food supply for the next spring growth, increases buds that form into the new rhizomes, and sets buds for the new bloom stalk. When this period ends, the rhizome is matured, and it enters a period of semidormancy until early fall rains encourage the second cycle of root growth. For this reason, irises will begin shipping in August, NO EXCEPTIONS.
