Artist's Description

photo taken 27-May-2018

The Presby Iris Gardens were established in 1927 in memorial of Frank Presby and are now one of the largest collections of iris in the world. Presby was a founding member of the American Iris Society and its first treasurer. The Iris Gardens are open only in spring, for obvious reasons, and are spectacular.

The gardens were established in 1927 to honor Frank Presby, a noted horticulturalist and a founding member of the American Iris Society. This world-class collection now includes approximately 10,000 individual plants, representing 6 species and over 3,000 different named varieties of irises. It is the largest non-commercial garden dedicated to irises in the world.

The Gardens are in a park-like setting and open to the public without charge. Donations, however, are greatly appreciated. Each year Presby has over 10,000 visitors. Normally, the blooming season is May 14 to June 4.

Address The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens, 474 Upper Mountain Avenue, Upper Montclair, New Jersey, USA, NJ 07043
Opening times Early/mid May to early June. Daily. Open 10am to 8pm.
Entrance fee Free
