Goodman Iris Garden

The sweeping Alice Hahn Goodman Iris Garden, designed in 1984, contains over 1,500 irises, including every horticultural division of bearded iris, beardless Siberian and Louisiana irises, and a collection of species irises adaptable to the St. Louis climate. Peak flowering typically happens around Mother’s Day, with many reblooming later in the year. 

The Iris Garden is a sanctioned American Iris Society Display Garden and a sanctioned Historic Iris Preservation Society Display Garden.  The collections are largely overseen by the local Greater Saint Louis Iris Society. The bronze sculpture Unicorn Spirit is on the east side of the main path, across from the Iris Garden.
