Iris Sale

On July 28 the Greater Rochester Iris Society will hold it's annual public iris sale.  Many of the iris will be locally grown cultivars.  Some will also be from Aitken's Salmon Creek Iris Gardens.  This is your chance to get some spectacular additions to your garden at bargain prices.

'Witchfire" IB Marky Smith 2013
This beautiful 2013 introduction is called 'Witchfire' and is being offered through Salmon Creek.  As an intermediate bearded (IB) iris it is shorter than the more common and popular tall bearded (TB) iris.  As you can see it is really spectacular and its shorter height makes it less prone to damage by high winds and more appropriate for a smaller garden.

When you come to our sale, not only will you get some great bargains, but you will be able to talk with some local iris experts about many types of iris, get tips on how to grow and care for them.

We hope to see you there!
