August is a good time to lift and divide your Bearded Iris, but don't touch your Pacific Coast Native Iris until the rains return in fall. To learn more about the joys of growing this "Flower of the Rainbow" go to the American Iris Society's website.

The King County Iris Society holds lectures and events throughout the year and publishes a monthly newsletter. Their annual rhizome sale is September 13 and 14 at Crossroads Mall 15600 NE 8th St, Bellevue. To join the society send $10.00 to KCIS Membership Chair, PO Box 95538, Seattle, WA 98145-2538.
