Iris Rhizome Sale

June 22 - July 8

Shop our Iris Rhizome Sale online from June 22 through July 8

Oakland Cemetery is home to more than 150 varieties of irises, many of which are heirloom varieties dating to before World War II. We propagate our irises, and sometimes they reproduce so well we have rhizomes (iris “bulbs”) to share.

Here’s your chance to showcase some of Oakland’s unique and historic Irises in YOUR garden! The rhizomes are ready to plant in your garden. They love the heat and will require little effort on your part to be happy!

  • Order by July 8.
  • Iris rhizome quantities are limited. Rhizomes are first-come, first-served.
  • Pick up your order at Oakland Cemetery’s Bell Tower porte-cochere on Saturday, July 11, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
  • All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the preservation and beautification of Oakland Cemetery’s gardens.
