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.

Our office and fields are now closed for the season. Please check back next Spring for an update on our open hours next year. We are open during May and early June when the irises are in bloom. We would love to see you then.


Newly planted iris in the digging field that will be available next Spring. Be sure and check back for next year's opening day. Have a restful winter!
