This company has really great prices. Some rhizomes are smaller than usual, but it's due to their colder climate. If they are small, they give you two or more to make up for it. I will order from them again next year.

Sheri was a joy to deal with. She was very quick to respond to emails and was able to let me know right away if what I wanted was in stock. When I ordered (in April) a July ship date was given, and the order shipped on that date. The packaging was great, as were the size of the iris (as previously noted - if small they will send 2)

All and all a great experience.

I'd say that the very best thing about Blue J is their customer service. They changed my order three times, once just a week before they shipped and they seemed very happy to be hearing from me every time I sent them a message.

The prices are fabulous and when rhizomes were small they included two. They ask you to send a list of extras that you'd like but then they send more. I was able to experiment with newer cultivars that I couldn't find photos of because the prices were so reasonable.

They are in the middlewest and they have a shorter growing season than some of the bigger houses that boast bigger rhizomes. However, theirs were freshly dug and in very good shape.

I'll certainly buy there again. If you do, you'll enjoy the experience.

About a week after I received my iris I noticed borer damage and indeed found a borer on a Blue J plant. I've never had borers and the blue j plants were by themselves. That can happen, but when I tried to let them know they became very defensive and said that they had been checked by the agricultural agent and basically I couldn't possibly be correct. They did say that they would replace the one that I threw out due to the damage.

I originally said that their customer service was great - but when you have problems, it's not so great after all. With all the wonderful iris vendors that are available, I'll shop elsewhere. And I had such high hopes.

Wonderful company to deal with. Shipment arrived when promised with nice sized healthy rhizomes. They even sent multiples of several. Will definitely be ordering again next year.

My 2005 order is doing great. There were two misfills which their wonderful customer service has taken care of.

My 2006 order has arrived and, once again, I'm a happy camper. This is a great comapny

I also give this garden a 10+ rating!!! I ordered 144 rhizomes and was very pleased with my order--
Sheri is wonderful to work with!!!!!

The first order I received from them last year was great---so I decided to send in another order (05). The second was packed in the straw, the rhizomes were moldy and much smaller. I figured the size was due to ordering so late in the season. I had about a 50% bloom on the ones that lived and out of those around 10 were not correctly named. I ordered this year mainly to get be able to get the correct ones from last year.
The order this year was not much better. So next year I will pass.

I am very pleased with this new company. The quality, price and communication is tops! I had several large orders and because the cost was so reasonable I really expected the rhizomes to be small but they were fresh healthy large plants. I also sent 3 seperate orders. But no problem, Sheri was great with combining everything. I highly recommend Blue J and you can be sure that next year I will be first in line with my order.

Blue J Iris is a fantastic source for irises! They even have some "hard-to-find" varieties. The rhizomes that I received were wonderful, and were a terrific bargain! An itemized invoice was included with my order. Bonus rhizomes were also sent. E-mails were always promptly answered and very friendly. My order was shipped on the date promised. I look forward to doing more business with Blue J Iris next year and I highly recommend them to everyone!

I purchase large amounts of iris annually from various sources. This year I saw the Blue Jay website and ordered. I was over whelmed with the plants I received. Every plant was healthy and the size was more than adequate for the price!!!! They are great to do business with!!!!!!

Email were answered promptly and professionally. Have placed a large order with them for hard to find irises. Will update when order arrives. Sherry is very friendly and answers questions quickly.


On July 22nd, 2005, Elizabethtown added the following:

Irises arrived this week, perfect specimens all golf balls or larger. Even gave duplicates of what they felt were smaller rhizomes.
On May 2nd, 2006, Elizabethtown added the following:

Just want to add that as of todays date, 100% of the irises ordered from BlueJ have survived the winter in my garden. Most are putting up scapes and those that aren't have many increases.
