Time once again for the free Twenty-second annual May Iris Show, presented by The Iris Society of the Ozarks.
Please come and see the array of beautiful Iris being grown right here in the Ozarks. There will be many varieties to view. Also there will be an Artistic division this year. The shows title this year “IRIS WITH THE ARTS”, with 5 classes each should be spectacular.
There will be Iris Society members on hand to answer any questions you may have on growing, dividing, pest control, etc. Come and join us Saturday, May 5th. The show will be available to the public 12:30-4:30 (judging will take place 10:30-12:30). Given the warm weather and early bloom season we should see different varieties in this show, varieties that usually bloom much later!
Don’t forget to visit the lovely Iris Garden in Close Memorial Park. It’s just a few yards southeast of the Botanical Center building tucked in with a number of other collection gardens.
