First September rhizome sale
The Iris Society of Dallas will present for sale some of the newest in bearded irises on the market. Click on the September 6th Iris Sale tab on the left to see pictures. In 2013 and 2014, The Iris Society of Dallas sponsored the American Iris Society annual conventions. Convention guests viewed gardens from Sherman to Mesquite to Cleburne to Mineral Wells with Plano, Weatherford, Grand Prairie, Anna, and Addison in between. Hybridizers from around the world sent irises to be grown and displayed in the convention gardens. American Iris Society judges toured the gardens and made selections of irises they felt deserving of national attention and awards.
Most of the iris hybridizers that sent plants to the national conventions allowed The Iris Society of Dallas to keep the irises and continue to grow and share them with other iris enthusiasts.
Each of the sales will offer different iris varieties. The irises range the entire color spectrum including orange, pink, red, apricot, yellow, blue, white, purple and black. There will be re-blooming irises and novelty irises including “space age” with flounces, spoons, horns, and other additional petaloids. Broken color and fancy plicata irises will also be available for sale There will be pictures of all the irises offered for sale. Additional pictures of the irises for sale are included on The Iris Society of Dallas website @ www.irises-dallas.org.
Some irises are limited in quantity and sell out quickly. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. Planting instructions will be available as well as demonstrations of how to plant and care for the plants.
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase and grow irises that are adapted to the Texas climate. Dallas was very fortunate to host 2 conventions back-to-back. Convention sites are planned many years into the future with Portland, Oregon in 2015, Newark, New Jersey in 2016 and Des Moines, Iowa 2017.
