Iris4u Greenhouse Online Catalog - It's In The Flower!
Welcome to Iris4u Greenhouse!
Dear Iris4u friends and fans,
For over 10 years, Iris4u Greenhouse has been importing Tall Bearded Iris from the family “garden” in Denver, Colorado to offer more than 400 varieties from a wide range of hybridizers each year to Europe.
2021 was more than extraordinary year for our family-run business. It was a colorful journey with several highs and lows. At the end of the season, we made a family decision to reduce our selection of TB iris and offer in the future only "VAN LIERE" varieties.
As a result of this transition, our online shop will remain closed for the season 2022!
To ensure that your favorite Van Liere cultivars are available next year, we will use this year to propagate our existing sortiment for future enjoyment.
Our next season will therefore begin in April 2023!
If you are interested in having iris this year, we will have a selection of rhizomes in containers at our greenhouse in Ahrensburg near Hamburg for you to purchase. Telephone or written orders with shipping is not possible!
The most colorful time to visit us is during the main flowering period from mid-May to early June, Fridays or Saturdays.
We thank you for your understanding and are truly grateful for the trust our customers have placed in Iris4u Greenhouse!
We wish you a wonderful spring, stay healthy and see you next year!
Jennifer and Markus Dreyer
Did you know that the Tall Bearded Iris was named Perennial of the Year 2016 in Germany?
They may seem like garden divas, but in actuality, iris are easy to care for and thrive in almost all soil types. With plenty of sun and warmth, these uncomplicated perennials become the “kings and queens” of your garden between May and June.
Whether you call these cultivars Iris, Bearded Iris, Tall Bearded Iris, Iris germanica, Iris barbata, or Iris barbata-elatior makes no difference. The name is not what impresses, but rather the flower: solid self or multi-colored; laced or ruffled; spooned or horned beards. There is something for everyone and the combinations are endless.
Our filter function below will help you navigate our online shop to help you find your perfect iris!
When will my Iris bloom? There are 3 main categories when Tall Bearded Iris start to flower: Early, Mid-season and Late. Naturally weather plays a big role - warm spring temperatures will mean an earlier start to the season. A cooler spring then means a later start. Below is a general rule of thumb when to expect color in your garden.
Very Early: beginning of May
Early: mid to end of May
Middle: end of May to the beginning of June
Late: mid to end of June
Rebloomer: Tall Bearded Iris is a winter hardy perennial which blooms each year in spring. A “Rebloomer” blooms in spring and can potentially bloom again in autumn. That’s what makes them so unique!
