Thank you for choosing us for your bearded iris. Our number one goal is YOUR complete satisfaction. To help us serve you better please use this guide for your iris order.
PAYMENT OPTIONS: We offer several payment options when placing your order. We accept cash, check, Visa, and Mastercard. Payment is required at the time you place your order to ensure that the items you ordered are reserved. This policy applies to on-site, catalog, and website orders. Cultivar availability is on a first come, first serve basis meaning that orders placed earlier in the season will have a better chance of guaranteeing that all items ordered are in stock. Many items are not grown in great quantities due to the large number of cultivars available through our nursery (~1,500).
ORDER CUT-OFF DATE: To expedite harvesting and planting for the coming year we must have your order no later than August 31st. The earlier you order the better your chance for receiving all of your selections. We will ALWAYS confirm each order with at least one email or telephone call.
SHIPPING/DELIVERY SEASON: Our shipping season runs July 10th through September 15th. Our shipments depend on our local weather, so if you have a special delivery date let us know via email and we will try to meet your needs. We DO NOT ship bearded iris in the spring.
MINIMUM DOLLAR ORDER: $25.00
SUBSTITUTIONS: Since we are at the mercy of Mother Nature we do sometimes have to substitute for a particular iris you may have ordered. If you have any preferences to substitutions we will take special requests into consideration. If you do not list preferences, we will substitute, at our discretion, irises of similar color depending on availability. We will always substitute with a cultivar of equal or greater value. If you DO NOT want us to substitute with an iris of equal or greater value, please check the box on your order form. If your selection is out of stock and you do not want substitutions, we will refund the balance due with your iris delivery. We do reserve the right to substitute varieties within collections or special offers for an iris of equal or greater value.
EXTRA IRIS: All orders will receive extra iris. Please attach a list of your preferences.
PLANT QUALITY: Our farm is state inspected and our plants are guaranteed healthy and true to registered name. We cannot be responsible for your growing conditions, climate, etc. However, if we have made an error please notify us within 10 days of receipt and we will make every effort to set things right. It is important to note that not all rhizomes will be of identical size. Some varieties are genetically bigger than others while some are genetically smaller. Rebloomers tend to be a littler smaller because they never experience a dormant state during the growing season like non-rebloomers do.
FREIGHT/HANDLING CHARGES: We use USPS Priority Mail or UPS ground service for all of our shipments. Sales tax is to be paid by Iowa customers ONLY. All other customers from other states are not subject to Iowa sales tax.
