About the event
The genus Iris offers many delightful options for the home garden. Whether you like bearded or beardless, native or hybrid, aril or arilbred; join us as we explore the relationship between iris growth cycles and common cultural practices. Members of the Eastern North Carolina Iris Society will also conduct live demonstrations, answer questions, and share tips and tricks for planting, digging, and dividing irises in the Piedmont. Attendees will receive a calendar describing irises in 15 horticultural classifications, expected bloom times in North Carolina, and month-by-month recommendations to help irises thrive in your garden.
The iris calendar is a gift prepared and presented by third-generation iris grower Heather Haley. Heather is the past president of the Eastern North Carolina Iris Society, managing editor of the World of Irises blog, and member of the American Iris Society Board of Directors.
