Annual iris show May 24

YAKIMA – The Yakima Valley Iris Society’s annual flower and design show will be featured at the Yakima Area Arboretum on Saturday, May 24.

All are invited to attend the show and competition hosted by the Yakima Valley Iris Society from 1 to 3 p.m.

Attendees can meet the experts, see demonstrations, view specialty irises, learn about becoming a member of the Iris Society and more.

While visiting the displays, society members also want to remind visitors not to forget to take a walk through the arboretum’s stunning iris display bed. The iris bed contains many award winning and newer variety plants.

In addition, area residents can enter their own irises and iris designs for the judging competition.

Prizes will be awarded to the top entries in adult and youth categories for design and flower divisions. Entries can be delivered to the Jewett Interpretive Center between the hours of 8 and 10 a.m. the morning of the show. Generic unknown flower varieties will not be accepted.
