The Iris Garden at Chatfield Farms was first planted in 2014 and relocated to its present location in fall 2015. These plants were donated from a private collection built by iris enthusiasts Carla and George Lankow from Washington state. Over 400 accessions of mostly historic cultivars and species iris are growing within this garden.

Plants growing along the fenceline showcase the story of iris hybridization work through the centuries. The plants on the northwest end of the garden nearest to the cottonwood trees are the oldest hybrids, while the ones found nearest the parking lot are the most recent to enter the horticultural trade. A majority of this collection was hybridized between 1840 and 1960. This collection is currently being verified and labeled as plant identifications are confirmed.
