Do go by the iris farm while the iris are blooming for a real visual treat. Last time we went we drove through the grounds and was several deer grazing amid the flowers.

This is the place to go to see your potential new iris in bloom, to dig it yourself ( you can only buy after the blooming period) and then take home to your own garden. The owners are there to give any advice you might need and they absolutely have the best selection.

If your garden needs a little color in the spring, then Long's Iris Gardens is the place for you! We buy a few new iris there every year. You dig them up yourself ($4). All are hybrids grown there, so the colors aren't available ANYWHERE else! Long's Iris Gardens have been there over 100 years. This is why Boulder has... More

I was really excited to see the garden, but it wasn't opened at the time I went (4th of July weekend). So call before you go.

Long's Iris Gardens has been a Boulder institution for generations. Stop by late April or May to "dig your own" iris and add vibrancy to your own garden. Dozens of varieties to choose from. Before you leave, spend 30 minutes walking the property and admire the rows Ask to look inside at the original store, with all its history. Visit... More

Other reviews spell it out - this is the place for those of us who want numerous iris plants. We go most years and dig up many plants. Then we split them at home making it a very inexpensive and worthwhile visit. It is the place to go without doubt if you live near Boulder.

I go to Long's every spring and select irises from their self-digging patch. It's a great deal if you aren't picky about the color of irises you select- you'll only know what you're picking if they are starting to bloom. In fact, I will need to go next spring as I have to fill in some holes in my garden.... More

Long's has been a mainstay for many years for those who love bearded irises. Can find many new colors. It's wonderful just to walk through the gardens for the color.
