Excellent company and I rate it highly. All of my iris plants were healthy and are doing well post planting. The customer service is great. The gentleman who returned my phone calls was friendly and experienced. There was huge selection of plant products and it was difficult to choose which specific variety. I have already recommended them to my Master Gardener friends in this community.

Wow I was shocked to hear negative comments about this company, if you look back at my past postings I started buying from them in 2004 and have bought every year since, expect one year when they would ship in spring. I have bought a lot of Japanese and Siberian Iris from them and everyone was big and healthy and not a single one has died, same thing this year. They would have 3 more positives if I commented each time I ordered. DThomas
Ensata Gardens gave me great service. They have a large selection of Iris, daylillies, and hosta. I ordered my Japanese iris's (ensata) from Iris City Garden as their prices were better and have excellant plants and service (but a some what smaller selection). I ordered eight daylillies from Ensata gardens and was amazed at the quick timely delivery and the size and condition of the plants! I was used to Park's daylillies, Ensatas were many times larger and no more expensive. Ensata even sent me a complimentary daylilly with a catalog value of $14. ! I will do businesss with them again.
I have gotten several orders from Ensata, sent some as gifts to my daughter as well. The staff is absolutely wonderful, kind, cooperative, helpful. I can't say enough about the quality of their plants and their care of clients. Due to no fault of their own, I lost one plant because of drought restrictions, and there was no hesitation about replacing it.
I just received my order from Ensata Gardens. In a word: wonderful! I ordered Siberian irises and daylilies and they sent a recent introduction of a Siberian. Everything looks great and I can't wait to plant them.
I just received a nice order from Ensata Gardens -- very promptly delivered, VERY nicely packaged, good looking, healthy starts of 10 misc. Japanese irises. Great deal on misc. packages of 10 named Japanese, Siberian, or water irises @ $44 (shipping included) if you're not picky about which varieties you get.
I love Irises and have bought from Ensata Gardens. The plants were small which I can stand but there is no warranty on any plants. I bought Strawberry Fari, which came very small. It rotted away in two weeks. They will not replace or give credit. This is the only plant I lost from them, but it was expensive - $35 for one small fan. I am looking for another source.
I have visited and ordered from Ensata Gardens and would recommend both. This nursery is clearly a labor of love, with high quality merchandise and advice. Plan a visit at bloom time in at all possible.
I am from Indianapolis Indiana and have visited Ensata Gardens in Michigan as well as ordered some of their lovely Japanese Iris. They have a beautiful exhibit of flowers, the orders consisted of good, clean, high quality starts. I recommend.
