New Window on Presby in Bloom
It's almost full bloom time in Montclair's best known gardens. The Essex County Presby Memorial Iris Gardens was established in 1927 to honor Frank H. Presby of Montclair, a leading horticulturalist and a founder of The American Iris Society. This living museum, listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Sites, offers a spectacular display of thousands of iris varieties to visitors from all over the world.
Along with special event info, a great new addition to the informative Presby website is their live webcam. Scroll town to the bottom of the home page and click on a live streaming stop motion overview of the garden that continually displays the blooming irises as well as the flow of visitors around the garden.
