Annual Iris Naming Contest Now Open

Each October we select one of our seedlings, never before introduced, to be named by you, our fellow Iris enthusiasts. This year’s seedling (pictured here) shines a golden yellow in the garden. We are seeking a name which is Oregon-themed.

Contest open to US residents only. Entry deadline is 9:00 p.m. Pacific, Saturday, October 10, 2019.  The winner will be notified via email in November 2020. Winner will receive one plant of the named Iris (to be shipped summer 2021) and a $25 gift certificate to Schreiner’s Iris Gardens (to be mailed to the winner along with a copy of the 2021 catalog in the spring of 2021).

Contest Rules: One name entry per person please. Suggested name must not already be registered with the American Iris Society. Any name submitted which is already registered with the American Iris Society will be discarded. You can search for registered Iris names on the AIS encyclopedia at Contest open to US residents only. Prize will be shipped to a US address only. Schreiner’s Iris Gardens reserves the right to select the name from the entries received by the contest entry deadline of 9:00 p.m. (Pacific), October 10, 2020. If no suitable name is submitted, Schreiner’s Iris Gardens reserves the right to name the seedling.
