AIS Region 7 -- Iris Rhizome Sales

Each club's rhizome sale is it's financial lifeline.  It's the club's main source in income to support public gardens, pay annual AIS officer dues, pay for public spaces to conduct meetings, shows, and rhizome sales, as well as pay for club President to attend regional and/or national American Iris Society meetings.  Additionally, 10% of all club rhizome sales fund the regional organization.

Some clubs conduct rhizome sales in conjunction with their annual show and/or later in the summer.  As such, the timing of these rhizome sales or auctions vary among clubs. Read "The Irisarian" for alerts on many of these as well as your local club's newsletter.
