2017 CIS Purchase Program

This year the CIS again offers a selection of special high quality iris plants for your growing pleasure. This program helps support the activity and function of the Canadian Iris Society (CIS) and its registered affiliates, a further plus is that you get yourself some very nice flowers at the same time too!

In the 2017 program among the many irises are some newer iris introductions in the TB and SDB category. There is something for everyone within the various iris categories; TB/BB/IB/MTB/SDB/MDB. The annual CIS Purchase Program will get underway on June 1, 2017. Also for your convenience and reference there is a mini-catalog with color photos and descriptions of the irises. (check the download link below)

Please take note that the CIS Purchase Program is reserved for current CIS members only. (if you are not currently a CIS member; see note below on how you can still participate by joining at the same time as you order)

Here is how it works: With this program you choose your special new irises from our 2017 listing, reserve them by prepaying for them now and then at the correct planting time later in the summer we ship them directly to your home. When your order is received the available plants are reserved for you. Order early for the best selection. All the plants are a limited supply and some of these go fast so do not delay! With the help of our iris friends at a major commercial iris garden we have available a selection of iris introductions and they are at great bargain prices compared to what you would normally pay. These will be top quality rhizomes that will be shipped directly to you! The plants on offer are American Iris Society (AIS) registered and named iris cultivars. Each will be clearly labeled and ready to pop into your garden. We will provide you with the info on the expected time of arrival once we have that information, but it will likely be near the end of July.

The plants listed will be sold on a first come first served basis to CIS members. Place your order by e-mail, phone or postal mail. If a plant is sold out we will notify you by phone or e-mail so you have a chance to change your order or cancel. Payment must be received before any shipment will be made.

The sale opening /closing date: So that everyone has a fair and equal chance to review the listing and obtain the available plants, orders will only be received from June 1, 2017 onwards. The sale will end July 15, 2017.  This will allow us to process the orders, ship them to you and therefore give you adequate time to plant the irises so that they become well established before cold weather/winter arrives. We suggest to place an order as soon as possible as the items are limited in quantity therefore your available selection will be greatly reduced as time progresses.

2017 Shipping Costs: Ontario: 1-10 rhizomes $12.00 | 11-20 rhizomes $20.00 | 21-30 rhizomes $28.00 | 31-40 rhizomes $36.00 | 41-50 rhizomes $44.00
Rest of Canada: 1-10 rhizomes $20.00 | 11-20 rhizomes $28.00 | 21-30 rhizomes $36.00 | 31-40 rhizomes $44.00 | 41-50 rhizomes $52.00
