Hurray! The 2016 Pacific Northwest Iris Growers sale starts on Tuesday, Sept. 20 Hurray!

Here's a link to the Shipping Thread: FINAL PNW THREAD 2016

Each year the Oregon Trail Iris Society (aka Pacific Northwest Iris Growers) has a bearded iris sale at a nursery in Oregon.
As a fund raiser for that association, Linda Lowell and Robin Shadlow offer the extras to us.
These include many recent introductions, all very nice irises.

This year tall bearded irises will be only $5 per rhizome and median irises, $3 per rhizome.

After the sale in Oregon concludes late Saturday, Sept. 17, the hundreds of rhizomes that remain have to be inventoried.
I’ll receive the list on Sunday, Sept. 18.
When I receive the list, I will post it at the bottom of this post and then add links to photos as quickly as I can.

The irises will have been dug for 1½ to 2 weeks by the time you receive them and may have some dried leaves, so please don't order if this is an issue.
There will be no refunds.




To give those who work at different times a chance to participate, approximately half the rhizomes will be for sale in Round One on Tues., Sept. 20, at 6 a.m. Pacific time (9 a.m. in the East).

The other half will be for sale the same day in Round Two at 6 p.m. Pacific time (9 p.m. in the East).

There is a limit of 25 rhizomes per participant for the first day.
It's okay to order in both rounds on Tuesday as long as you don't go over 25 total for the day.
After 6 a.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, Sept. 21, the limit is off, and you may order as many as you want.

You can look at each ORDER THREAD prior to start time to see which irises and how many of each are offered in that round.

You will order by posting on the ORDER THREAD in this forum.

The ORDER THREAD will be locked until the official start time, and orders will be filled in the order that they are posted.

List the irises that you want in alphabetical order, the same way they appear on the Master List.
Indicate the number of rhizomes you want of each to the left of the name.
If no number is given, I will assume you want one rhizome.

To add to or change an order, make a new post.
I will not look for changes, and you will not get what you want.

As soon as you have ordered, send me a c-mail or e-mail [email protected] with ALL of the following information:
1. your Cubits name
2. your real name
2. your shipping address
3. your e-mail address (so your invoice can be e-mailed to you)

The SPREADSHEET is on GoogleDocs.

Once the sale starts, I will update the spreadsheet frequently so you can see which irises you were able to get, which ones are sold out, and which ones are still available.

If you find an error in your order on the spreadsheet, post on the open ORDER THREAD so I can correct it right away.

When your order is final, post that it is in a new post on the open ORDER THREAD.

I will then forward your order to Linda and Robin, who will send you an invoice by e-mail.
When you receive the invoice, it's time to make your payment.
The spreadsheet will keep track of your order, but please WAIT for your e-mailed invoice before paying.

All orders must be paid for by Friday, Sept. 23, at 9 p.m. Pacific time (midnight in the East).


PayPal is the only payment method we are set up to take.
Your total will include the 4.7% PayPal fee that PayPal charges Robin for her business account.

Robin's PayPal address is [email protected]

If you do not already have a PayPal account, it's free and easy to set one up.
Just go to and click on the “Sign Up” button on the right.


Your irises will be shipped in priority flat-rate boxes at actual cost:
$13.45: 1-15 rhizomes
$18.75: 16-30
$32.20: 31-45 (large box + medium box)
$37.50: 46-60
$50.95: 61-75


If you have questions, this thread is the place to ask them so that everyone can benefit from the answers.
After the sale starts, you may ask questions on the open ORDER THREAD as all other threads will be closed to prevent orders from being posted in the wrong place.

Here's the list! Click on the name to see a photo.
Lots of great irises up for grabs!
