It’s always an adventure…especially for me…to get to Delane and Jane Langton’s place….also known as the Eagle Ridge Iris Gardens. It’s well worth it though, after the long search down the windy, hilly roads of the Emerald Hills area.
This uniquely located garden was started in 1998 and sits on a breezy ridge, with iris plants crowning it. Delane and wife Jane, tend over 3,000 varieties of iris, which you can see here http://www.eagleridgeiris.com/ or on their Facebook page…just type in Eagle Ridge Iris Gardens in your Facebook search window.
Delane demonstrated how to divide iris, to discard the blooming fan… and told us how he successfully rescued some very, very old iris from rhizomes to be tossed from the Moss Mansion. He was also very generous is gifting iris starts to those interested.
