Ordering Information



We only sell irises grown in our garden.

Breezeway Iris Garden is a state licensed and inspected nursery.

Our garden is located in growing zone 4 and has a shorter growing season than many Iris sellers. That is why we do not stat taking orders until May 1st, so we know they are growing well before we finalize our inventory. We also shop over a shorter time because we need to finish shipping before we can move to our planting season.

When processing your order and we find that an iris you bought is no longer available or not suitable for shipping we reserve the right to substitute an iris of similar color of equal or greater value.

If you prefer no substitutions be made, please let us know in the comments section when placing your order.

Irises are live plants and should be planted in late summer or early autumn. They need to be in the ground at least six to eight weeks prior to the first killing frost in your area. Do not put irises in the refrigerator and do not leave them out of the ground over two weeks.

Irises will not bloom the year in which you plant them. Many will bloom in the following spring and some will take time to grow and acclimate with the best bloom coming in the 2nd and 3rd year after planting.

Shipping & Delivery

Irises are not available for immediate shipment – Iris will be bare rooted rhizomes, fresh dug, cleaned, labeled and shipped mid-July to the beginning of August. During checkout, you’ll have an option to select a shipping week. If you live in the Madison, WI area, you could also choose to do a pickup order. Regardless of your preferred option, you will indicate your choice in the comments section of the checkout when prompted.

Shipping charges are calculated based on the number of iris purchased and the location they are shipping to.

Customers living in the Madison area can pick-up pre-paid orders at the garden. Let us know you wish to pick up your order in the comments section when placing your order. If you pay by PayPal I will not capture the shipping costs. If you pay by check simply subtract the shipping costs from your order.

We are not licensed to ship orders outside of the continental United States.

Payment, Pricing & Promotions

Payments are accepted for orders placed through the website with credit card via Square or PayPal, and personal or cashier checks.

Iris Prices are determined by their date of introduction and classification. Newer varieties are more expensive than varieties that have been available for several years.

Returns & Replacements

We guarantee all plants to be healthy and true to name as registered with the American Iris Society. If an iris variety is not correct please send us a photo of the iris in bloom and we will ship the correct variety at no additional cost as well as try to identify the mislabeled variety.

Irises are guaranteed to arrive in good condition. If for any reason your iris are damaged in shipping or arrive in poor condition please notify us immediately so we can provide replacement plants or make compensation.

If we made a mistake in filling your order or you are not satisfied for any other reason, let us know as soon as possible and we will make amends. Please do not request a return or refund through PayPal – it actually complicates the process because we have to follow their guidelines and it takes much longer resolve the issue.

We cannot provide replacements for iris that do not make it through their first winter because we have no control over when your iris are planted or growing conditions you or nature provide.
