Our online Iris Sale offers you the chance to plant some of Oakland’s beautiful iris in your own garden.
We’re offering nine classic, bearded iris for your garden. All are tough survivors and, while they can endure years of neglect, they will reward a little care with many beautiful spring flowers. They should settle into your garden and provide beauty for generations to come.
About the Plants
Iris are best divided in the middle of the summer, June and July. Digging during the heat of Atlanta summers may not be our idea of fun but we do it their way. Each bareroot rhizome will be cleaned, trimmed and labelled – ready for you to plant in your garden. Full sun suits them best so give them a sunny home and they’ll give you flowers for years to come. A detailed instruction sheet will be included with each order.
Orders will be available for pick-up in the nursery behind the greenhouse on Saturday, July 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Check in with the attendant who will direct you to your order.
Any plants not picked up will be left unattended on the Visitors Center’s front porch. Those not collected by Wednesday, July 26th will be discarded. Every dollar raised during the sale will go toward purchasing tools, equipment and plants. Thank you for supporting Oakland’s gardens.
