Shipping Info

US Orders: (Scroll to bottom for information on international shipping.)

Minimum plant order is $25.00 (plus shipping).

Estimated Shipping Charges:  Where possible, we ship Priority Mail, so please include full street address or PO Box if applicable. Local customers may pick up orders at the garden to save shipping costs.

An estimated shipping fee of $12-$24 (depending on your address) is calculated by the shopping cart system. This will cover priority shipping on small orders, and ground service for larger orders. For priority shipping on larger orders, particularly for beardless orders sent east of the Rocky Mountains, there will be an additional charge of $1 for each iris in excess of the first 6. The exact fee will depend on the size and weight of your order. Customer Service will contact you to adjust the shipping fee, if necessary. 

Shipping Live Plants:  We ship live plants freshly dug just prior to shipping. We coordinate our shipping dates to optimize the plant's ability to grow, survive the winter, and bloom for you the next spring. Therefore, shipping can sometimes be several months after you place your order, especially if you order very early in the season.

Shipping Dates:  Bearded iris orders will be shipped mid-July through the end of August. Japanese, Louisianas, and Siberians are shipped August through September; Spurias in early October. These beardless irises must be shipped by air in order to get plants to you in good condition. Beardless irises shipped in September and October are shipped separately from any earlier bearded irises, and will incur separates shipping charges.

Bonus Plants:  Bonus plants will be included on all bearded iris orders. These will be our choice, based on order size and availability, but your suggestions are welcome.

Substitutions:  Substitutions will not be made without your permission.


International Shipping:

Shipping live plants internationally is heavily regulated, and is expensive. Many countries have a customs process that is too slow, and plants die before the customer can get them. Consequently, we currently ship to the following international destinations only: Canada, Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, and United Kingdom.

Minimum International Order: $100

International shipping: $150

Your country may charge a VAT or other import taxes when you buy from us. The customer is responsible for paying their own import taxes that their country imposes. These fees and taxes are NOT included in the price of your order.
