The sale is now closed for 2020. Thanks to all the donors and buyers for supporting the Dwarf Iris Society.
The DIS annual plant sale is a great way to acquire more interesting irises for your garden and to support the society. The sale is usually the best source for hard-to-find MDBs no longer available from commercial growers. It works like this: donors offer collections of irises they would like to offer for sale. The plant sale chair complies a list of collections and receives orders from buyers. Finally, donors ship their collections directly to the buyers, ensuring the freshest possible plants.
Sorry, the sale is limited to US addresses only.
Donors receive first opportunity to buy collections in May.
Buyers: The general sale opens to DIS members on June 12 through this website. Nonmembers who wish to join DIS may purchase a membership along with their sale order. Select the collections you would like to buy, and email your order (along with your name and shipping address) to the plant sale chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. The chair will confirm your membership and contact you to confirm the availability of your collections and arrange payment options.
The sale opens to nonmembers on June 26.
The sale closes on July 10. The sale chair will notify donors of the names and addresses of the buyers of their collections, and orders will be shipped from donors directly to buyers by the beginning of August. DIS will reimburse donors for postage.
