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 are now open for the 2015 season. We will be open every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 9:00am to 5:00pm through June 10.

Yesterday was warm and sunny and the forecast for today is for more of the same. The Tall Beardeds are opening up and are in good bloom. It would be a good time to come and see the iris in the next few days.


Bolder Boulder, one of the Tall Bearded iris in bloom now and available to dig. Come see this and other blooms in the next couple of weeks.
