Kudos to Borglums Iris Farm

Just a short drive from Rochester, not to far from Geneva you'll find Borglum's Iris Farm. It's a dig your own clump deal and it's a great way to start a iris garden.

The Borglums sell and hybridize all sorts of iris, bearded and beardless as well as peonies.  I am waiting for Dana's peony 'Antique Ivory' to bloom.  Silvia's siberian 'Silvia's Love' is lovely!  Dana one the AIS national medal for his species cross 'Alley Oops.'  It's a sight to see.

One of my best purchases was a single clump of 'Crabapple' in 2013. I think a clump was $7 then (call for current pricing).  I divided it into 4 or five parts planted it in a row and here's what I have 4 years later.  What a bargain!

Below are some others that came from Borglum's.  Some are named others are bee crosses.  Dana says, "If you like it, call it what you want."

They're good people.  It's worth the trip.  They do not sell on Saturdays, but you can still visit.
