Hurray! The 2012 Pacific Northwest Iris Growers sale starts on Tuesday, Sept. 11 Hurray!

Please remember that the only way to order is by posting on the following Order Threads. NO orders will be accepted through c-mail, tree-mail, e-mail, etc.




I'm putting a lot of information in this thread for those who like to know all the details at the very beginning. Key instructions will be repeated on the ORDER THREAD as well. The procedures are the same as they were last year.


Each year the PNW Iris Growers have a bearded iris sale at their September meeting.
As a fund raiser for that association, Denise offers the leftovers to us at a bargain price, only $3 per rhizome!
In the past there have been quite a few rhizomes left and many very nice irises.

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.
I've ordered every year and have never received a rhizome that was not healthy and ready to grow.

Denise will send me the list of irises being offered on Sunday, Sept. 9.
I’ll add photo links and post the list at the bottom of this thread late that day or very early on Monday, Sept. 10.


To give those who work at different times a chance to participate, approximately half the rhizomes will be for sale on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 6 a.m. Pacific time (9 a.m. in the East).
The other half will be for sale the same day at 6 p.m. Pacific time (9 p.m. in the East).

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.
You can look at each ORDER THREAD just before the sale to see which irises and how many of each are offered in each round.

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.

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, please send me a c-mail right away.
The spreadsheet will also help you keep track of how much you are spending, including shipping, but please WAIT for Denise's invoice before paying.

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 first day.
After 6 a.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, Sept. 12, the limit is off, and you may order as many as you want.

As soon as you have ordered, send me a c-mail with ALL of the following information:
1. your real name
2. your shipping address
3. your e-mail address (Denise has to have this to e-mail you an invoice)
4. your choice of credit card or PayPal for payment

When your order is final, post that it is in a new post on the open ORDER THREAD or send me a c-mail to that effect.
I will then send your order to Denise, and she will send you an invoice by e-mail.
When you receive the invoice, it's time to make your payment.


All orders must be paid for by Friday, Sept. 14, at 9 p.m. Pacific time (midnight in the East).

You may use PayPal. Your total will include the 4.7% PayPal fee that PayPal charges Denise for her business account. Denise's PayPal address is [email protected]

You may use your credit card by calling Denise at 541-259-2343 after 6 p.m. Pacific time and giving her your credit card number

You may use Intuit, following the instructions on the invoice.

No checks or money orders will be accepted for this sale because of the very short time frame.

Irises not paid for by the deadline will be reposted to the spreadsheet on Saturday, Sept. 15, and will be available to whoever orders them first provided they are ready to pay immediately.


Denise will be packing the irises on Sept. 15 and 16 and mailing on Sept. 17 and 18.

Shipping charges:
West of the Mississippi $8.00 + $.65 per rhizome
East of the Mississippi $9.00 + $.75 per rhizome


If you have questions, this thread is the place to ask them. Then everyone can benefit from the answers. When the sale starts, this thread will be locked, so ask questions or post discussion on the open order thread.

I skipped the last sale so I could have room for a few from this sale. No one here would tell if you "accidently" forgot to put out a box of really good ones at your local sale and then found them right before our sale....... Whistling

Will the list have pictures? To be perfectly honest, the reason why I skipped out on the last sale is that I honestly don't have time to look every single iris up. Or if they could be grouped by color (purples here, blues there, whites here, oranges there...).

What can I say, I'm lazy. LOL
Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.
