The Iris Society of the Ozarks specifically focuses on the display of Bearded Iris. Repeat bloomers and multiple heights are included in the collection. Bearded Iris are always large and showy and offer the full spectrum of colors. Some are quite fragrant with peak bloom from late April to early May. Iris are one of the easiest perennials for this region. Look for other plantings in the English, White, Master Gardener, Federated Garden Clubs and Japanese Gardens.

The Iris Garden is located southeast of the Springfield Botanical Center, just east of the Roston Native Butterfly House. The garden is in peak bloom during late spring, with annuals helping extend the color in the garden until frost.
