Work and Learn: Powell Gardens Iris Collection

Did you know that the iris is the official flower of Kansas City and that Powell Gardens has more than 560 named cultivars in its collection? Learn about the history of this collection, the man behind its conception (Dr. Norlan Henderson), and help our horticulture staff relocate iris specimen into a new, well-designed home in the garden. Participants who sign up for this workshop will learn how to care for, properly cut back, and relocate iris rhizomes (while helping us start this relocation project) and will get an iris  cutting or two to take home. Participants should bring plenty of water, a snack, and dress for the weather (wear sun-protection clothing, sunscreen, a hat, and closed toe shoes please). We will provide tools and gloves.

Instructors: Travis Freeman, Matt Hockaday, McKenna Bowman, Powell Gardens Horticulturalists
Cost: $25 (Members receive 10% off)

Thursday, July 11, 2019 9:00 AM thru 12:00 PM
