The Iris Sale open from 9am to 5pm is located at Westlake Ace Hardware (32 E. 15th, Edmond, OK) and is sponsored by the Edmond Iris and Garden Society.

The Edmond Iris and Garden Society continues to cultivate a strong relationship among members and the community as they prepare for their annual benefit sale, Saturday June 6. The club has a long history in Edmond, dating back to 1925. The upcoming sale is a total labor of love for the 25-30 members.

Proceeds from the sale will help support the club, which even has members from outside Edmond, including Yukon and Guthrie. There will also be a scholarship provided for a horticulture student. 

And what is it about the iris that makes it attractive to so many?"It's easy to plant," Markham said. "It's low maintenance." The Edmond Iris and Garden Society meets monthly and brings in speakers for members and guests to enjoy. 

As members noted, there is a lot to be known about gardening. They also give back to the community with maintaining gardens and occasionally purchasing a tree for the city. And for annual dues of $5, members can socialize and simply have fun.
