Bearded Auction Irises Shipped

One of the innovations at the AIS 2017 Convention was an auction of guest irises.  After seeing guest irises on the garden tours Thursday and Friday, visitors were able to bid on a number of them Saturday afternoon.  This week the bearded irises were dug and shipped to the winners, shipped July 24th and 25th.  I know some bidders have already received theirs.  The others should arrive (USPS) shortly.

Thank you to everyone for participating in the auction!  And thank you to the volunteers who dug, prepared, and shipped these irises!

Shipping of the beardless irises will be late August or early September.


Gardens Tours Videos

The Convention gardens tours provide great opportunities for photos.  Or videos.  Or combinations.  Jan Blaedel did a combination by combining some of her photos from the gardens into short videos.  Thank you Jan for sharing these.  Each video is about 2 minutes.

Do you have photos or videos from the Convention to share?  We would be glad to include them on the website.   You are welcome to use the comments or send to to let us know.
