Here, in the KSU Gardens, our Iris collection has hundreds of different varieties, mostly tall bearded, but there are also some of the Dwarf and Siberian varieties. The family of Leon and Mary Delmez donated 174 different types of Irises that gave the collection a great start. Many recent donations have come from local members of the Flint Hills Iris Society and are enabling the collection to grow.
Each year the Flint Hills Iris Society, along with the KSU Gardens, host an Iris sale generally the last Saturday in July. Proceeds from these sales benefit the Iris collection in finding their permanent home located in the Conservatory Garden: Phase II of the gardens.
