About Us

The Shady Spot is the result of a lifelong passion for gardening, flowers and animals.  We moved to this location in 2008 and have been designing, building, digging and planting ever since.  Now the iris collection features over 3,500 varieties from the newest introductions to many old historic varieties, including many rarities.  We are proud to be a Display Garden for both the Tall Bearded Iris Society and the Historic Iris Preservation Society.  Each year we typically add several hundred different varieties so the scenery is always changing!

The garden is open to visitors during the iris bloom season, typically between April and mid May, or any other time of the year by appointment.  Please phone 940-594-5557 for a visit.
