	We are looking forward to a memorable iris season.  The American Iris Society
convention is being held in Denver, and our garden will be visited by hundreds
of iris experts and hobbyists on June 4, 5 & 6.   We are also excited by our
hybridizing program.  Three of our iris creations have now been registered

	You are invited to visit the garden during bloom season, usually late May to
early June.  Please call to be sure someone will be home.

substitution will be made for unavailable varieties with plant(s) equal to at
least twice the value of the ordered variety.  Generous extras are included
