Sun Country Iris Society Phoenix, Arizona Sun Country Iris Society is a 501(c)3 organization and is affiliated with the American Iris Society
In addition to our shows, exhibits and sales where we meet the public, SCIS has ongoing community projects.
August and September of every year is the time SCIS members are digging up and dividing many of their iris rhizomes. Some of these have lost their registered names, or there may just be too many to sell. The SCIS Gardening Angels collect these iris and donate them to several community projects. We have donated over 600 iris rhizomes over the years. Some go to schools to teach youngsters how to garden. Others go to organizations like Make a Difference which coordinates volunteers to help in many Phoenix area community projects. We also donate to nursing homes and non-profit organizations like churches. Our irises beautify a number of places throughout the valley.
