Iris Day: 

 Iris Day is canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you will join us on Mother's Day of 2021.
Iris Day is on Mother's Day every year from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Visitors are welcome to view the colorful array of blooming irises at the KSU Gardens and to vote on their favorites. The top five irises are announced at a later date. During Iris Day, visitors receive an iris list which makes it easy for them to note the ones that they would like to buy at the annual iris sale in July. Members of the Flint Hills Iris Society will also be on hand to answer questions about iris.
