When spring comes, the diva of your garden – your iris – take center stage. These lovely flowers tell us that spring has arrived and summer is just around the corner. And don’t forget our show date of May 12th – you won’t want to miss it. Click here for more information.

Bluegrass Iris Society's members and friends are digging irises to share with you at our Public Rhizome Sale, July 28th at Lexington Green Mall, from 10am to 2pm. Click here to learn how to dig, divide and share your irises.

Quality, modern irises will be available to the public at only $4 each – while supplies last. Members will be on hand to answer your questions about planting and growing irises.

For those who join our Society, August 2 is another opportunity to grow your collection. Click here for more information.

Our Mission

The purpose of the society shall be to promote an increased interest in all types of iris and the iris in general in the bluegrass area and to encourage and foster the culture and improvement of the iris, and to promote the interest of the youth in our area, the region and the American Iris Society (AIS).

For your enjoyment...
