Mother’s Day is Sunday. Along with the traditional brunch, many Moms will receive flowers on Sunday. If you’re looking for a different idea for Mother’s Day – check out Nola’s Iris Garden in San Jose. After that great brunch – meander over to Nola’s to see one of the largest Iris gardens around.
Situated in the east San Jose foothills, Nola’s garden spreads across 43 acres and features thousands of blooming bearded Iris flowers, along with views of Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay area – from San Jose to San Francisco. The gardens are open on weekends through the blooming season – and you can purchase bearded iris bulbs to start your own iris garden for Mom. Bulbs include Tall Bearded, Border Bearded, Intermediate Bearded, Dwarf Bearded and some of the best Reblooming Iris in the world.
