An eye for irises
Do you have a spot in your garden that is continually damp or are you looking for the ideal plant for your water feature?
Well, Kyogle Garden Club reckons it has the solutions you need!
On April 8 the club has invited Heather Pryor from Iris Haven in Sydney to speak to about the Louisiana iris. This cultivar originated in the southern states of the USA and they need damp conditions, rich acid soils, and can also be grown in a pot as a feature plant in a water feature. These plants produce spectacular blooms of many colors and Heather will have a range of rhizomes for purchase on the day. The afternoon session will then focus on other iris cultivars and day lilies.
The meeting will be held at 10am on Thurs, April 8, at the Kyogle Seniors Centre in Bloore Street.
Entry of $10 includes morning tea and lunch. For tickets phone Nancy Oaten on 6632 1375 before Wednesday, March 31.
