the Lone Oak Iris Ranch
The ranch is located in
the rich San Joaquin river bottom land -
in the heart of Central Valley of California - just
a short drive from Fresno. We are located close to Yosemite National Park and the
California Giant Redwoods, which can make a visit to our Iris
Ranch a multi-faceted experience those that aren't local.
Jennifer Smith is the owner and cordial host of the Lone Oak
Iris Ranch. Her gorgeous
array of colorful irises now grow where her grandfather,
Everett Rank Sr., once farmed. Her iris farm and immaculate
grounds, has been in the family for seven generations and has
been an iris ranch for over twelve years. If you're looking for an
afternoon outing or a specific color iris, Jennifer will welcome
you and guide you in her friendly, hospitable style.

Variety of Potted
Irises That Are Now In Their New Homes
If you want to buy an iris next season, here's how it works:
In your visit to the ranch, you pick out the irises you'd like to
Pay for your
selections at that time;
Return to pick up
your selections later in the Summer, when your selection has
your rhizome home and plant it according to Jennifer's
year, your yard will be dusted with the lovely colors and fond
memories of the Lone Oak Iris Ranch. These gorgeous blossoms
will likely encourage another visit to the ranch for more irises
to plant in your yard - year after year.
Jennifer would like you to know that it all started with her
mother, Jane Giffin, who said to Jennifer “I have some irises
and I would like you to have them for your new home. The problem
is...you'll never finish. Irises are like potato chips....you
can't stop at just one!”
Visitors, Photographers & Artists - Always Welcome
Come by and say
"Hi" and wander through the colorful paradise.
You never know
when one of Lone Oak's irises might find its way into your
