Bluegrass Iris Society will hold our annual Iris Show at the lower level of Lexington Green Mall on May 17. Those showing irises will need to have them placed by 10:30am; judging will begin at 11am, and the show is open to the public from 1pm to 5pm.

The event is FREE and open to the public; it will include some iris educational exhibits and a sale of potted irises. Society members will be on hand to answer your questions. Come, and bring a camera!

Our Mission

The purpose of the society shall be to promote an increased interest in all types of iris and the iris in general in the bluegrass area and to encourage and foster the culture and improvement of the iris, and to promote the interest of the youth in our area, the region and the American Iris Society (AIS).

For your enjoyment...
