|2013 Spring Trek|
San Diego Iris Society is excited about inviting you to attend our spring trek April 26 & 27, 2013 right here in San Diego.
But why would you even want to attend?
Three great gardens located in three different climate zones: mild, temperate, frosty cold.
- Mild coastal commercial garden. Hundreds of iris varieties, all labeled, well grown in a park .like setting. When you are tired of looking at iris, relax under a canopy of giant trees in a comforting grassy area.
- Temperate well grown home garden. View huge clumps of well grown guest bearded iris, as well as Louisianas, Spurias, Pacific Coast Iris and more.
- Cold, frosty inland garden on 7 acre homestead. Hundreds of gorgeous home grown bearded iris varieties to view. Here is where judges. training will take place as there is lots of space to spread out.
Dinner and a top speaker will highlight your Saturday night:
Did I mention the raffle we have planned?

Region 15 of the American Iris Society
Region 15 as we know it today held its first meeting on April 22, 1939. As a result of this first meeting, the American Iris Society Board of Directors joined Southern California and Arizona into one region. With varied climates, our region has tremendous potential for hybridizers and commercial growers as well as those who simply enjoy growing irises.
Region 15 currently has 11 affiliates in Southern California and Arizona. The Region and its affiliates provide education and support to local communities through programs on the care of irises, public shows and judges training sessions. Region 15 conducts Annual Spring and Fall Treks that provide a variety of programs and judges training sessions that are open to the general public. The Spring Trek includes tours of the gardens of club members to view the newer irises during bloom season. For more information regarding the Treks see the links on the left.
