Best Cut Flowers
Phil Yard Iris Farm
STAFF PICK: Phil Yard's main business is growing iris rhizomes for sale, but a byproduct of that enterprise is flowers. And what flowers! It's a hell of a drive out there, but for a heavenly reward! During April, Yard fills his little shed with armloads of iris, freesias and roses, big luscious fragrant bouquets that he sells on the honor system. Just leave $5 under each vase you empty. At this price you can fill your house with flowers and celebrate the return of Persephone from the underworld.
