2021 Greetings from Hillcrest Iris & Daylily Gardens!
What a wild ride 2020 was! There is nothing we can add that has not already been talked about regarding the pandemic.
We had grand plans for Spring 2020 for the garden. T-shirts, banners, signs, potted iris plants for sale—-all these items we plan on using this iris season. While the world was going through probably the worst pandemic known to man, the irises and daylilies bloomed the prettiest they have in years. We didn’t have late freezes, hail, high winds… all more common than not during bloom season.
Our business was good last year and we thank our new customers and returning customers. Hooker has some very pretty 2021 introductions we hope you will like… 11 tall bearded, 1 intermediate bearded, and 13 Louisiana irises. We are introducing our first broken color Louisiana iris that we hope you like as much as we do.
Please order early. Some stock is limited. We are awaiting confirmation of registered names from the American Iris Society.
End of season iris surprise boxes are available again this year.
Our garden will be open during bloom season this year. We will practice social distancing and support wearing masks. Our commercial garden is located at 15076 County Road 349 Terrell, Texas. We are 1 mile north of US Highway 80 between Elmo and Wills Point.
We hope to see you soon! Stay safe.
Hooker and Bonnie Nichols
