Iris Flower Shows
Presented by the Delaware Valley Iris Society
The Delaware valley Iris Society (DVIS) will be having several events at the Arboretum again this year. There will be two shows with both stalks of colorful irises and flower arrangements containing irises on display. The first show will be on Saturday, May 18. All types of irises may be there, but the majority will be Tall Bearded Irises. The second iris show will be on Saturday, June 22. This show will feature Japanese Irises. There will be other types of irises on display also.
We welcome anyone who is interested to come and exhibit at these shows. You need not be a member of either DVIS or Jenkins in order to do so, and there is no charge for entering. You do not have to pre-register in order to exhibit. Anyone interested in exhibiting should plan on arriving at 8am.
Both shows will be open to the public from 12 noon - 4pm. Photography is encouraged! There will be knowledgeable members on hand to answer any iris questions that you might have.
There will be a sale of all types of iris plants and rhizomes at the Arboretum on Saturday, July 13, from 10am - 1pm. Please come early for best selection!
Free of charge. All are welcome. No pre-registration required.

More About Jenkins Arboretum
Jenkins Arboretum is a privately owned and operated natural arborteum that is open to the public free of charge 365 days per year. H. Lawrence Jenkins established the arboretum on his property as a memorial to his wife, Elisabeth Phillippe Jenkins, who was avid gardener. The Arboretum opened to the public in 1976. Views of the valley all the way to King of Prussia, as well as up-close views of nature can be seen along the 1.2 miles of paved pathways that wind through the 40+ acre site. The property features an education center that was finished in 2010 and five different garden areas, including Rhododendron Collection, Green Ribbon Native Plants®, The Woodland Garden, Wildflower Gardens and a Bog Garden
