Iris Rhizome Sale
June 29, 2019 @ 4:00 am - July 13, 2019 @ 1:00 pm
Our online Iris Rhizome Sale has ended. Pick up your order at Oakland’s Bell Tower building’s porte-cochere on Saturday, July 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will have a limited selection of iris rhizomes available for purchase at this time along with a selection of other plants from our greenhouse.
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!
All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the preservation and beautification of Oakland Cemetery’s gardens.
