Iris Lovers

Enter our Spring Iris Show - Fly Me to the Moon- on Wednesday April 22, 2015, to show off your irises and your design skills.  Iris shows traditionally have been for the purpose of exhibiting individual bloomstalks. This show is an AIS-sponsored event and will include a Design Division as  well as a Horticultural Division.  You do not need to be a member to enter.  Pre-registration is
required to enter the Design Division.  Contact Sherry Caldwell 404 826-1688.  All designs/entries will be judged by AIS qualified judges, and awards/ribbons will be presented. If you would like to share your irises with others and enter a judging competition, join us on April 22.  To learn more about showing your irises, visit the American Iris Society’s link for displaying irises.

Get your kids involved too!!  Enter the coloring contest and bring your colored pictures to the show where they will be displayed as well as the irises.  Click on the link above and scroll down to Exhibit Ideas.  There you can download coloring pages for young people to use.

Not ready to submit for judging?  Then come to the Spalding County Extension Office and enjoy what others have to show off and learn how you can grow award winning irises.  This show is free and open to the general public for viewing from 1:00 p.m until 4:00 p.m.on show date only.
