Wild Iris is the culmination of decades of growing in the mountains.
The company’s 2400-square-foot greenhouse is located near the base of Lone Cone peak, on the West End of San Miguel County. Situated on five acres, this historic property has been home to ranching operations since the late 1800s. Homesteader Maude McCoy (of Hatfield and McCoy infamy) lived in what is now Wild Iris’ studio office, and grew roses where the cutting garden is now.

Owners Martinique and Craig Prohaska have lived and landscaped in the Telluride area for most of their lives, and are proud to carry on the tradition of growing in the San Juan Mountains. Marti grew up in Telluride and is a Colorado Master Gardener and a Colorado Certified Greenhouse Grower, and Craig owned and operated Telluride-based landscape company San Juan Landscapes for over 20 years.
