If you are in the area, this is an absolute must see. There is a glorious display of their irises and columbines in a park like setting. You can admire the blooms, sit on the benches and even bring a picnic lunch. This is the growers' display garden not a botancial garden. It is even accessible after their business hours. Well worth a stop during the blooming season in May/June. Check first.

My friend and I went to see the gardens because we were seeing such beautiful advertisements on TV. Well the plants were beautiful but the upkeep of the gardens and grounds themselves were very much lacking. I kept telling myself this is after-all a business to ship flowers and not made for people to tromp through! I would go there again to see the variety I might like to buy but I would not take a guest thinking to show them a beautiful garden.

If you're in the area during May...this is a Must See! So beautiful!!! I've never seen so many amazing varieties of Iris in one place. The exhibit garden is impressive, and you can even buy bunches to take with you. Loved it!

The pictures don't do justice compaired to the live up close and personal views. I baught one for myself and one for my daughter. We visited over Memorisl weekend, everything was in full bloom! We will be back again soon!

In looking for some sights to see while celebrating our anniversary in the Salem area, I came across this gem. It was a sunny morning in mid-May and apparently the perfect time to see all the Irises in full bloom. I had really never seen anything but purple and yellow Irises so the vast amount of variety at Schreiner's was a treat. We started in the back gardens and then ventured on the little path of Rhodies, Sweet William and Peonies to the big show gardens and gift shop. We enjoyed every minute and look forward to adding more color to our garden.
