Japanese Iris Show

The Western New England Iris Society is having its annual Iris show at the Community House in Shelburne on Sunday, July 5 from 1-4 pm. 


This is an opportunity to see a variety of beautiful Japanese irises and learn about their needs and culture.  Japanese irises have a flatter more horizontal flower and bloom slightly later than Siberian and bearded irises.  I always thought they required a wet site to thrive, but Kathy Puckett told me this is not so. They tolerate a lot of wet, and so are a good choice for the wet early summer garden, but it is not necessary. Deb Wheeler of Colrain, 624-8800, has full information about the show.
