INDIANA DAYLILY-IRIS SOCIETY (IDIS)
Non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of daylilies and iris
On our site you will find our calendar of events for this year, our newsletter, links to our national and regional societies, and links to local growers.
On Saturday, July 8, 1-4pm the Indiana Daylily-Iris Society will
be holding its annual Daylily Show at Sullivan Hardware and Garden
Center, 6955 N Keystone Avenue, Indianapolis. It is free and open to the
public. As an accredited show by the American Hemerocallis Society,
members will be displaying their most prized daylilies which will be judged
according to accepted standards. The Design Division will have the theme:
Peace, Love, and Daylilies--Songs from the 60's and 70's. Come and see
some outstanding daylilies not usually found in local garden centers.
Join us on Tuesday, August 1, 6:30pm for our program entitled:
"Hook, Line, & Sinkers: An Iris Seed Survival Strategy" by Steve
Poole from Eldorado, IL. Steve is an iris hybridizer and comes from
a family of gardeners. He received his first irises as a gift for
his eighth birthday. Steve joined the American Iris Society in 1969
and has had several tall bearded introductions.
Expect an interesting iris talk!
An added bonus will be the auction of some of the guest iris
from the Median Iris Society Mini-Convention held in May.
