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 8:00 to 2:00 Monday through Friday for the rest of June.

 

The iris have finished their bloom for this year. You may still order from our catalog for shipment in July and August. Please check out this year's listing!

 

During the rest of June you may still dig your own iris from our digging fields. One of the fields has photos signs so you can see what the iris will look like in bloom.

 

In August 2017, Long's Gardens was recognized as a Colorado Centennial Farm - one that has been in the same family for over 100 years. We went to the State Fair in Pueblo and were honored along with 37 other farms and ranches in Colorado. We have been in our current location for 102 years in 2018 and in business for 113 years.

                            

This was a great year for the iris bloom as shown in this photo of one of our fields when in peak bloom earlier this season. Thank you to all who came to enjoy the iris!
