Welcome to Long's Gardens

Welcome to Long’s Gardens! We are a third generation, family owned and operated iris farm in the middle of Boulder, Colorado. We were founded in 1905 by J.D.Long. Today the business is carried on by Catherine Long Gates, grand-daughter of J.D., and her husband, Dennis Gates.

For more on our history, see About us. We specialize in bearded iris, which we sell both as dig it yourself and by mail order catalog. Operating an agricultural enterprise in the middle of a city makes for some interesting challenges, but also provides an opportunity for people to slow down, take a break, and relax (take a virtual tour at Beyond the Bloom). Come see and smell the iris and enjoy a bit of historical Boulder. We’re open to the public when the iris are in bloom, May through early June. Please check back often for updates.

We will be opening for the 2015 season on Saturday, April 25. We will be open every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 9:00am to 5:00pm through June 10.

The bloom is quite early this year. The Standard Dwarf Bearded iris are in full bloom and should be putting on a good display when we open on April 25th. Some of the Intermediate Bearded irises are starting to bloom. The Tall Bearded should be in bloom by mid May. Please check back for updates.

Fingerprints, a Standard Dwarf Bearded iris in bloom now. Fingerprints, and other iris classes will be available in our digging field starting on April 25.
