The Presby Memorial Iris Garden: A Legacy of 90 Years

Event Details

Please note: this meeting is on the 2nd Wednesday of April.

Speaker: Suzanne Broullon

The Presby Memorial Gardens are a delight to behold in May when thousands of irises are in bloom. Come hear how this magical place was created through an act of democracy and love. Suzanne Broullon, the Communications and Donor Manager of this local garden in Montclair, will explain how they keep these gardens blooming and how the gardens became the 20th park in the Essex County park system. Along with the garden history, you will also find out the highlights of bearded and beardless iris culture, and how to grow and care for them in your home garden.

Meetings begin at 7:30pm and are held at the Maplewood Memorial Library, 51 Baker St, Maplewood, NJ. Meetings are open to the public and refreshments are served.
