The 2004 Annual Iris Sale
Each September the Iris Society of Austin has a rhizome sale.  This year all of the rhizomes available to the public have been dug from the guest gardens featured during the 2008 American Iris Society National Convention, which our society hosted this past April.  These rhizomes are recent introductions bred by dozens of nationally recognized hybridizers from all across the United States.  They are now acclimatized to growing conditions in the Austin area and represent two years of growth in our local gardens.  There is a wide variety of both tall-bearded as well as Louisiana irises in many colors, and all are reasonably priced.

Come early and take advantage of this special sale.
