Come & see the exotic Lilies we grow in Iowa!
Join us for our IRLS Spring Lily Bulb Sale           March 2018
Iowa Flower, Lawn & Garden Show  at the Iowa State Fairgrounds

Pick up your pre-ordered bulbs + add a few more!!!

In addition to having plenty of information on growing and caring for
Lilies, we will have a nice selection of plump, healthy lily bulbs for sale at
our Award-Winning booth. We have very successful sales in part due to
the enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers who come and share
themselves and their "Lily Knowledge" with the purchasing public.

If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer a few hours with your
Lily Society, this is a fun place to do it!
