CWIS 2012 Rhizome Sale
We are pleased to announce that the Can-West Iris Society’s annual rhizome sale is now open.
The primary supplier of the Siberian varieties is the Ted and Sonja Baker's Gardens on Salt Spring Island BC. These
are a mix of the tried and true including several historic varieties, as well as some newer and recent introductions
from the work of many of the top hybridizers in the field. There is a price point for all budgets so everyone will be
able to participate.
In addition we have a selection of bearded varieties donated by CWIS members and friends from Miniature Dwarf
Bearded to Tall Bearded and most everything in between.
The rules and guidelines are basically the same as previous years, but there have been a few changes so please read
everything through carefully before you start looking at the sale listing and photos (see below for instructions on
accessing the photos).
In order to participate in this sale we have set out some guidelines to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible:
1. REQUIREMENT TO PARTICIPATE: Paid membership in the Society is required. The membership fee remains
at just $5.00 per year. The membership fee is to be included with your order. The only exception to this rule is for
people who joined up between September of last year and August of this year or those who have paid for multiple
years in advance. You and I know who you are. If you have any questions regarding your membership status, please
ask before ordering.
2. SALE PERIOD: The sale will run from Sunday, July 22nd to Saturday, July 28th 2012 or until the iris are sold
out, whichever comes first.
3. ORDERS: Send your e-mail order to B. J. Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Rhizome Sale Order 2012" in the
subject line. This is important! In past years a few orders have been missed because they did not have the
correct subject line to alert me to an order's arrival. Be sure to include a list of alternates just in case your first choices are not available
. Also include your full
mailing address and telephone number in case we need to contact you about your order.
4. ACCEPTED PAYMENT METHODS: Money Orders are accepted, no cheques or cash unless arrangements
are made with me prior to your order being placed. PayPal payments to email@example.com (instant bank
transfer payments) may be used but we are not set up for credit card payments
. Administration charge of 10
per cent of your order will be added to cover PayPal fees. The PayPal website is located at www.paypal.com. It will
take a few days to set up for instant bank transfers if you aren't already a PayPal member.
5. RHIZOME AVAILABILITY: Some of the varieties are in extremely limited numbers (i.e. just one or two).
Confirmations will be sent out as soon as possible following receipt of your order. Please remember the Rhizome
Sale Committee volunteer their extra time and labour to us every year and we do have lives outside of iris, so it may
take a day or two to get back to you. Your patience is appreciated.
6. PRICING: Prices are shown beside the individual varieties in all cases. The prices may seem high for some of
these, especially the newer introductions but I can assure you that it will be hard to find a better price anywhere in
Canada if you can find them at all!
7. PHOTOGRAPHS: Most of the varieties listed have a link to the American Iris Societty's iris encyclopedia (aka
the iris wiki). Just click on the link and you will go to the particular variety. If clicking on the link doesn't work,
just copy and paste the link into your browser and you can view them that way. A few do not have photos on the
Wiki. For these, you can visit the internet web page Webshots and clicking on the album 2012 CWIS at:
If it doesn’t show up as a hyperlink, copy and paste the address into your web browser.
8. SHIPPING CHARGES: Postage charges are not included. Postage charges will be:
Manitoba delivery: $11
Alberta, British Columbia and all other provinces: $15.
Large orders may incur additional postage costs.
Local Winnipeg delivery is available for $3. Those who elect this option will be given specific instructions as to
how to make arrangements to pick up their orders in the city when the confirmation is sent. There are no taxes or
other charges to pay!
In return for following these guidelines you will acquire some healthy and strong iris rhizomes at a very reasonable
cost. We cannot guarantee replacement should you happen to get a misnamed iris. We have taken every precaution
to ensure this doesn't happen but sometimes mistakes are made. We hope you understand.
Have fun and enjoy the process. We have tried to make it as simple as possible but if
you should have any trouble with anything, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is this year's listing. Remember, some of the varieties are in limited supply so don't think about it for too long!
And, have some fun. That's what it is all about after, all is said and done!
