Welcome to Comanche Acres Iris Gardens
(19 May 2021) Just a friendly reminder. We are at peak bloom season. Many of you will note this is a little later than usual. We expect to have a good bloom throughout this week.
Our fields have grass pads around the iris rows, and you should not get muddy. However, I would recommend wearing waterproof boots or shoes as the grass is still wet from the heavy rains.
Hours are 10 to 6 daily, seven days a week through early June. Please watch our Facebook page for further announcements.
Comanche Acres Iris Gardens is located in the gently rolling hills of northwest Missouri near Gower. Jim Hedgecock is the owner and 2021 marks his 41st year in business.
The Iris gardens take in some 8 acres. Tall Bearded Iris are, and always will be our mainstay in irises. We grow over 2000 named Tall Bearded varieties, as well as several thousand seedlings. Spuria irises, the king of the landscaping irises, are exploding in popularity. We grow over 200 varieties of Spuria irises, as well as several thousand Spuria seedlings.
