Dwarf Iris Society

DIS Plant Sale

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 coordinator compiles a list of collections and receives orders through the DIS online store. Finally, donors ship their collections directly to the buyers, ensuring the freshest possible plants.

We will be extending the sale to both US and Canada addresses again this year. Canadian buyers pay an additional $5 surcharge per collection to help offset the costs of additional shipping and phytosanitary certificate.

Donors: If you have irises to donate, please arrange them into collections of 5–8 irises. We accept collections of MDBs, SDBs, arilbred dwarfs, and dwarf species, as well as mixed collections including MDBs. If you can offer multiples of the same collection, that is great! Please see our full guidelines or contact the plant sale coordinator (Rachel Martel) at plantsale@dwarfirissociety.org. The deadline for submitting your collection information is May 15.

Donors receive first opportunity to buy collections in late May.

Buyers: The general sale opens June 14 through the DIS online store. The sale is open to DIS members only for the first two weeks, and then is opened to nonmembers beginning July 1. The sale closes July 15, and orders will be shipped from donors directly to buyers by the beginning of August. DIS reimburses donors for postage. Check this page for up-to-date information and deadlines.

Plant Sale Guarantee: DIS guarantees all plants sold through the plant sale to arrive healthy and true to name. Our responsibility for unhealthy or misnamed plants extends up to a full refund for each plant in question, not including shipping costs.
