I order some iris from Robin and I got all of what I order except two but with all the extras she sent me I have no complaints. She included a note as to why she didn't have the two I didn't get. I think I count 25 extras from her. So if you order from Iris Sister make sure you have twice as much space for all of the extras she sends. A fantastic experience dealing with her.
I ordered about 24 bulbs from Robin recently. I mailed her a check and had them the next week. She gave me some extras which was nice of her also. Very nice and easy to deal with. I would definately reorder from her.

I should have added this last year. Iris Sisters is well worth the visit to their website. Robin is a pleasure to work with and is very accommodating. The iris sent are "petite" but in good condition and they are more than willing to work with you to make sure you get what you need and at the right time. Would highly recommend them and will order again!

This was my first order of beareded iris. After researching which varieties might stand up to Louisiana heat and humidity, I researched who had what I wanted and placed good-size orders with five different companies who were highly rated here. I have received all the orders now, and I can say without hesitation that Iris Sisters has a great selection of beautiful, healthy rhizomes at very reasonable prices. Robin communicated with me every step of the way, offered wonderful advice on which varieties would perform well in my climate, provided planting and culture info, and has encouraged me to participate in the Reblooming Iris Society, for which she is a record-keeper. You won't find a better informed vendor... or one who gives more generously of her help and encouragement. I received healthy, clean, well labeled, well packaged rhizomes with plenty of lovely bonus iris that I'm certain were selected with care to perform well here. Overall, I can say my purchase from Iris Sisters (and specifically Robin) was extremely pleasant and positive. I will definitely be a repeat customer. A+++

I just received my order from Robin, and couldn't be more pleased! This is my second year ordering from Iris Sisters, and in both orders I was sent beautiful, large, healthy, well-marked rhizomes. Robin is VERY generous and sent several wonderful extras.....plus, her communication is excellent! I look forward to ordering more next year and highly recommend Iris Sisters to anyone.
ORDER YOUR PLANTS HERE! You won't be disappointed.
I ordered my own iris way back in April, and somehow the order got lost. I didn't notice myself until September. I wrote to Robin, and asked her for a refund, because I figured it was too late to plant iris at this point, but I also told her that I did plan to order from her again next spring.
Robin immediately sent me a very kind and apologtic email, promising a refund. Today the refund check arrived--along with the iris order! I don't know if they will establish themselves before winter or not, but it's costing me nothing to find out.
This is old-fashioned service, the way business was intended to be. I can't recommend her highly enough. Honesty like this should be richly rewarded.
Buy your iris from this woman! :-)

I couldn't be more thrilled than I am with this nursery. Robin is friendly and helpful. The fans I ordered arrived in beautiful condition, large and healthy. I also had a very generous and varied amount of bonuses to try -- truly Christmas in July! I will be back for more next year.

She included instructions and extra rhizomes (also well marked) for me to try. I will definitely do business with her again and highly recommend this company to others.

Wow! I ordered late on Friday, and had my iris in my mailbox on Monday. I live close, but that was still faster than I could have hoped! She also included lots of extras. Very generous seller, and will definitely order from this company again since they offer such healthy rhizomes and good customer service.

I was looking for iris Sea Power, contacted Robin, she let me know right away they still had it. Ordered some additional ones. Received them quickly with nice bonuses. The iris were healthy, and plump.
I had ordered from Robin a couple of years ago, and received very nice iris then also, and they bloomed true to name.

I couldn't be happier with my order from Iris Sisters. Nice healthy clean plants, very well packed, lots of extras to try (!) and excellent communication throughout the transaction. I give Robin my highest recommendation!!
I ordered quite a few irises from this company's website. It was at the very end of their season before the deadline, so I was concerned about quality as this sometimes means you get undersized leftovers. However, all of the irises were good sized and the owner put in many extras, marked with their name and 'xtra'. I found room for all of them and they are doing very well, sprouting rapidly and looking great. I'm really looking forward to seeing them in the spring! Nice company, I would highly recommend them to anyone.
