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.

Our office and fields are now closed for the season. We will be open for the 2017 season from April 29 through June 11. We are working on our 2017 catalog and hope to have it ready in the next few weeks. You may mail, call, or email us to get a copy of this year's catalog.

You can check out our new introductions for 2017 which are now on the website.
