Presby Memorial Iris Gardens in Montclair: The Rainbow on the Hill
The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens, “The Rainbow on the Hill,” is one of the largest public iris gardens in the world.
As the website states: "The history of the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens is one that is deeply entrenched in the history of its community, Montclair, New Jersey. The Gardens were started as a memorial to Frank H. Presby, one of the founders of the American Iris Society and a leading citizen of Montclair."
The garden attracts over 10,000 visitors a year, and it is extremely popular with painters and photographers.
The grounds also include Walther House, which includes the “Bloom Room” where iris-related items can be purchased. You can see the Walther House in the background of some of my photos below, and I will have more photos of this lovely house next week.
