Iris Source

Just wanted to put in a positive word for an online iris nursery I patronized for the first time this year–Stout Gardens at Dancingtree. I have no connection to the business other than being a customer.

I was looking for a source for miniature tall bearded irises (MTB’s), and this was one of the few places that seemed to have a good selection. I was a little concerned at first because their website is very 1990’s looking, and I received no order confirmation when I placed my order months ago except for the PayPal receipt, and no other communication until I received an email yesterday with the tracking info. But the iris rhizomes arrived today, in the time frame I chose for shipping, and they are big and beautiful. They also sent bonus MTB irises, a copy of their (really beautiful) catalog that normally sells for $6, and a friendly handwritten note. I found their website to be a little difficult to navigate, so the catalog is a big help.

Some of the irises they offer are their own creations, but they also carry varieties by other hybridizers. They are in Oklahoma City OK.


The ones that are 1990’s looking are the best. That means they do business, not marketing…
