Can you tell me when you think the Iris will be blooming this year (2011)?

Your post caught my eye because I love iris and didn't know Hesperus had them! So I googled to see what I could find, and lo and behold, I found Blue Lake Ranch B&B has thousands! Is this what you are looking for information about? Or are there other Hesperus irises as well?

Their annual festival when the gardens are open to the public is the second weekend in June.

Thank You! I believe there are several gardens that have 1,000's of Iris, and most are available to purchase as well; I just don't know when that is...

June 11th and 12th, 2011, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM from the link Missp supplied. Sounds wonderful. My parents had the most gorgeous peonies and I used to have awesome iris when I lived in NM but haven't much success here. My lawn guy thought I was growing weeds the peonies looked so pathetic. Guess I'll need to take a trip down to Hesperus. Thanks for the tip.
