August 17, 2022: We would like to thank all our wonderful customers for your tremendous support this season, and during the end of season sale.  We are now closed for the season and the sale has ended.  Orders will be dug and shipped as soon as possible.  Photos and descriptions will be back on the website soon so that you can see what you've ordered.


Mid-America Garden 2022 Iris Surplus Sale

Welcome to the 2022 End of Season Iris Surplus Sale here at Mid-America Garden.  It has been a strange year, weather-wise, with a wet cold spring and then a lot of heat this summer!  The sale is a little smaller this year, but we have a lot of big beautiful rhizomes for you.  These are not small leftovers, these are big bloom size rhizomes.  The irises are still growing in the field, and all orders will be dug fresh.  There are many varieties on the list that will be discontinued and no longer grown after this season.

The sale runs from August 13th through August 17th.  We will not accept orders after that time.

As in previous years, the minimum order is $100 in irises, plus shipping.  Shipping costs will be the same as our regular season, and will be automatically calculated on the website.  At these discounted prices there will be no extras or gifts on the orders.  Some varieties are in short supply so ordering early is best if your favorite is on the list.  We are aiming to ship out the orders from the sale on August 22nd.  Sorry, but due to time constraints we cannot ship sale irises to foreign addresses.  Surplus Sale orders will only be shipped to United States addresses.

You can order just the same as you did during the regular season, with the shopping cart on the website.  Go to  and enter the “shop” section of the website.  There is no separate category this year, if it’s on the website it’s included in the sale.  Every iris on the website has been reduced in price.  All of the 2022 introductions have been moved into the “Tall Bearded Irises” category.  The sale includes a few Border Bearded Irises, but mostly Tall Bearded.

If you have questions it’s best to email, . I am not usually in the office during daylight hours so it is difficult to reach me via phone.


Attached for your reference is a PDF list of all the irises in the sale, showing the original price and the sale price.   This list will also be posted on the home page of the website.

Thank you for your orders, and for your continued support of Mid-America Garden.

2022 End of Season Iris Surplus Sale List -->


August 12, 2022: Thank you everyone for your continued support of Mid-America Garden during our 2022 ordering season.  The cutoff date for orders has now passed, but we will continue to dig and ship orders for several more weeks, so please don’t worry if you haven’t received any shipping notification yet.

The website has been disabled and all the iris images are hidden from view.  We are working hard to get ready for our 2022 End of Season Iris Surplus Sale, which we are planning to start the morning of Saturday August 13.  Stay tuned for more information.



July 5, 2022: Our order shipping season has begun with the first batch shipping out July 5.  Our spring/early summer was and is very cool cloudy and wet.  Although the rain has stopped we are still having a lot of cool and overcast days.  This matters only in the fact that the iris are slower in their growth.  Currently we feel the plants are about three weeks behind.  What this means is that the plants are smaller.  We are not concerned with their ability to grow but we just want to make our customer aware that the plants are not going to be of their usual size.  We have been a bit stressed about this but our record cold and wet weather is something that is very much beyond our control.  We have begun digging and transplanting our own seedlings and introductions for next season and the plants are growing off fine.  We have delayed shipping on some orders as much as possible to give a little more time for growth.  We thank you for your orders, your patience and understanding.  



March 14, 2022: The website is now open for 2022 sales for delivery in July and August 2022.   The new 2022 printed catalogue mailed out bulk rate on March 11.  If you are a domestic customer and have ordered from us in either of the last two years you will automatically receive one.  If you are a foreign customer including Canada the catalogues can be purchased on the website.  Canada $12 and all other countries $20.  If you are a new customer and live in the USA you can also purchase a catalogue for $12.  At 96 pages plus cover, the catalogue will be our largest to date.  It is a full color catalogue featuring over 1000 color photos.  We have provided a link below if you wish to download a copy of our print catalogue.  The file is large so it may take a while to download.    


If you are trying to contact us, email is best as Thomas is outside working in the fields during the day and is not in the office until after dark.  We try to respond to emails promptly.  


It would be a good idea to add this email address to your contacts if communicating with us to prevent any communications from Thomas or Mid-America Garden from going to your spam folder.
