Seedlings

Welcome to Patrick's Favorite Slideshow!

Here you will find pictures of some of our best seedlings. I was once told that only seedlings are new plants and that every one you buy from a nursery is used. I am not certain this is entirely the right way to look at it, but seeing an iris bloom for the first time is really exciting. I can frequently be found peeling the flower buds to get a sneak peak prior to opening.

I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Carla knocked the pot of seedlings over and lost the number. Hence the garden name, Dumped Pot.

‘I’ve have ordered a large number of iris over the past couple years from Cascadia. Patrick and Margaret have been stellar to work with. I’m very picky and they have been able to accommodate my requests and also keep me very well educated on iris culture. All of their iris I ordered were healthy and strong—every one came back the next year. The pictures of their iris are very accurate as well—no weird color treating. I will continue to work with CIG in the future! Thank you Patrick and Margaret!’

"I have purchased Japanese Iris from Cascadia Iris Gardens for the past 3 years. I have always received very healthy iris, whether I purchased them spring or fall. I have never been disappointed. That is why I always come back. I am looking forward to seeing their 2018 selection."
