Standards & Falls Iris

Standards & Falls Iris was established in 2022 by Louise Jamail, Melinda Nickens & Carol Shanks Price.   Our operation is situated on a sunny 30-acre lake, which we use for irrigation throughout the year.  

Carol, Louise & Melinda are members of the Society for Louisiana Irises and The American Iris Society and grew Louisiana Irises as a hobby for decades before starting Standards & Falls Iris.   The summer of 2023 brought unprecedented heat and drought to Texas which tested our mettle as commercial growers.  We appreciate our customers’ patience and support and look forward to a great season in 2024.
