The Iris Farm

Leelanau Iris Farm

Took this photo on Saturday at the centennial Iris Farm along M-72 about 5 miles west of Traverse City (5385 E. Traverse Highway). It’s really a beautiful place.

See it on the map (the blue flag on M-72)

    Wow… I wish I lived closer, then I could swing by places like this while things are still in bloom !

    I’m pretty sure I was driving by when this picture was being taken. I was thinking that I KNEW I was supposed to have my camera with me….and then we saw a gentleman with a camera on a tripod and was hoping I’d get to see the results. Thank you for sharing it here!

    My wife has long enjoyed the Iris Farm, far more for its exquisite blooms than its Centennial farm look. I’ve photographed there four or five times, but never had the success of your photographer. KUDOS!

    Two different years we have visited the iris farm in late july and the daylily acres in bloom are beautiful and very well labelled by variety. It is a joy to walk among the bountiful rows of daylilies in full bloom and write down for purchase the ones you want. I have paid on site with the order. In the early fall the order arrives freshly dug, well packaged, and healthy generous divisions for a very reasonable price. Definitely a worthwhile excursion for a garden enthusiast visiting Traverse City. Thanks!

    I visited here this summer and it was beautiful but I have a question. In the gardens by the house are several flowers that have a large pod on them as they bloom. What are these flowers?

    We live just south of Suttons Bay and been stopping there picking out in the sprin and picking up in the fall and now are yard is full of these. You can’t beat the price, trust me I have looked.

    Was thinking of driving to the Iris farm this weekend and wondered will there still be iris in bloom – or have I missed them?
