Welcome to the Iris Evolution In early 2017 Edible Ornamentals was gifted more than 3000 iris plants including a unique national collection of more than 150 varieties. The gift came with the challenge to both preserve and grow the collection but to also use it for the greater good. Edible Ornamentals has launched the the Iris Evolution project. Along with a group of enthusiastic and caring volunteers we're working together to achieve the following objectives:
work to identify those varieties which have not yet been identified
propagate to preserve the collection and expand the stock for retail sales
grow the collection by sharing and trading rare varieties with other national and international collections
breed new and unique varieties
sell iris plants grown for retail both at the nursery and online
Spread the love! Promote the project near and far and in social media. Deliver talks on the project and iris', conduct other events and activities to promote this gorgeous flower and raise awareness of the various community, social and charitable goals of our business.
