Iridaceae – The Iris Family

Iris expert Rodney Barton of the Iris Society of Dallas will present at the Tuesday, April 10, 2018 meeting of the Sunnyvale Garden Club at the Sunnyvale Town Hall at 10:00 a.m. Rodney is also a member of the Species Iris Group of North America, the Society for Louisiana Iris and the Native Plant Society of Texas.

Iris is a genus of  species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. Some people believe the name refers to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species.

Don’t forget to bring a plant for the annual Plant Exchange led by Carole Duckworth.

You don’t have to be a member to attend the meeting or participate in the Plant Exchange. All are welcome.
