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. Eastern North Carolina Iris Society members will give a live demonstration, answer questions, and share tips and tricks for planting, digging, and dividing irises in the Piedmont.

Attendees will also receive a printed calendar as a gift from local iris grower and presenter Heathe Haley. The calendar describes irises in 15 horticultural classifications, expected bloom times in North Carolina, and month-by-month recommendations to help irises thrive in your garden.

This public event is a collaboration among the Extension Master Gardeners(SM) of Guilford County, the Eastern North Carolina Iris Society, and iris farm the Broley Homestead.
