Quail Hill Iris Gardens
1955~2004
"A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth"
Everette and Ann Lineberger

A journey that began in 1995 to visit one of the largest Iris Gardens I had ever seen, has grown to be a dream for my own Iris business.

I have created this site because of my love for irises. It began as a personal project, but because of the interest that has been generated by the beauty of the pictures we have obtained, I have designed the site for all iris lovers. The information about the Iris are from the Quail Hill Iris Garden Catalog. The inspiration to start my own Iris Garden came from the Lineberger's. They have spent much time answering questions and guiding me as I begin my own journey creating Iris for others to enjoy.

The pictures, taken by Judy Shultz, are as true to color as if you were standing beside the plant. It is my prayer that you may enjoy the beauties God has created for each of us.
