Re: AIS: CULT: iris conventions

Welcome to the world of the iris obsessed.

The southeastern US is generally known as the 'vale of despair' for Tall
Bearded iris growing.  The national organization (AIS - American Iris
Society) had a national convention in Atlanta, Georgia, quite a few
years ago. Also more recently one in Memphis, Tennessee, and one in
Oklahoma.   Lots of damage from our usual late spring freezes at the
Atlanta and Oklahoma conventions (that out of region folks blamed on
soil, management, etc), but apparently Memphis wasn't hit by a really
bad one.

There are regional societies that have meetings in spring and fall, plus
Region 7 (Tennessee/Kentucky) has a midwinter potluck in late Feb every
year at Henry Horton State Park.  What part of the southeast are you
asking about?  You are welcome to join us at Henry Horton - quite a few
folks attend from outside our region.
