HIPS Rhizome Sale

This year HIPS will be changing the way we run our annual rhizome sale.  We believe these changes will enable you to get the rhizomes you ordered from our sale without waiting and wondering if they are really going to be available in that package you get late in the season.

We are also requesting rhizome donations. The Rhizome Sale is our only major fundraiser. It supports our website, our twice yearly journal ROOTS, and helps promote the programs we know are critical for the protection and preservation of our historic iris. We count on our iris gardener friends to be generous with their contributions of extra rhizomes. Unlike in previous years, you do NOT have to guess what you might have available in the middle of Winter. You will be able to determine in June what you will be able to donate.

Many of our members enjoy NOIDS too, so we would welcome donations of these iris for which you do not know the names, or you are not quite sure what the names are anymore. All we ask is that you submit a photo with each of your donated NOIDS so we know what they will look like.

We think you will enjoy this new format sale. We count on you to make it a success.
Below are all the details from our Rhizome Sales Chair. You can easily print out a copy of the document below and share with your iris loving friends. (Click on the pop-out icon which will appear in the top right corner of the document – this will make the document full-screen for printing.)
Do not hesitate to contact Judy if you have questions or concerns. Her email is included in the document which follows.

Thank you.
