Please check this page after the new year.  At that time we will list the dates of our Iris Identification course for new and advanced "bedbookers," those special volunteers who maintain the accuracy of our Iris Database while the irises are in bloom.

Check our website frequently beginning in May for important dates and daily Bloom Status Updates.

PHOTOGRAPHING IRISES

We respectfully request that all artists and photographers, amateur and professional alike, adhere to these garden guidelines:

1. Please do not spray irises with water as this magnifies the sun and damages the delicate blooms with burn spots

2. Please do not step in the iris beds or on the sides of the beds in any area that is mulched

3. Please do not set your equipment in the iris beds or on the sides of the beds in any area that is mulched
