Presby Iris Gardens

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 and autumn, for obvious reasons, and are then spectacular.
