Hybridizer’s Guest Iris Return Schedule

Iris hybridizers provided an incredible range of guest irises for the AIS 2017 Convention.  Something over 2200 plants for attendees to enjoy on the tours!

Post-convention the plants have a number of destinations with the bearded irises being processed now.  Last week we shipped the bearded irises to the winning auction bidders.  Next week, the week of August 7th, we will be digging and shipping the bearded irises hybridizers have requested be returned.  Hybridizers, we will email you as the bearded irises are shipped to you.

Beardless irises will be sent later to the winning auction bidders and to hybridizers who have requested returns.

Thank you to all the hybridizers for providing these guest irises!

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.
