Join us for a special event on September 24 as we welcome John Coble and Bob Bauer from Ensata Gardens in Galesburg, Michigan. They have the the largest worldwide collection of Japanese varieties (about 450) outside of Japan, and they will help central Kentucky gardeners learn how to add Japanese, Siberian, and other other special irises to your garden collections.
