PIDS is trying a new web page (March 2015) The "official" page can be found at http://pidsweb.org/
PIDS was started years ago by gardeners who shared a special affection for the species iris and hemerocallis. In 1992 we incorporated to operate exclusively as a non-profit organization to promote, encourage and foster the development of these two genus. Enough dry words, suffice it to say that we all in our own ways try to further both our own and the general public's appreciation of these two plants.
We hold six to eight meetings a year and publish a quarterly newsletter. The society's calendar normally runs from a spring program in March or early April through a November program. The iris vice president is responsible for the first program and the October meeting which also includes the society's annual business meeting. The daylily vice president has responsibility for the May daylily auction and the November program. We usually sponsor accredited shows - iris in late May and daylily in mid July, plus a summer picnic, plant auctions and an early fall banquet. As the opportunity arises, we have also in some years held an educational show, clinics to help our members prepare for our shows, judges training clinics and additional programs featuring speakers of interest.
New members and guests are encouraged to attend and participate in all of the society's meetings and functions. To help you start a plant collection, PIDS members donate plants at our summer picnic that our new members share. If you have any cares, concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact one of the officers or board members.
