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 open for the 2017 season from April 29 through June 11, every day from 9-5. Since the bloom is very early this year, we are having a "soft" opening this week and will be open by appointment 9-5. Please give us a call or email before you come - we will be busy getting ready for our official opening this Saturday.

     Since the season is so early this year, it would be best to plan your visit on the early side of the season. Our digging field will have photos signs so if the flowers are out of bloom you can still have an idea of what they look like.
