One of Region 21’s own was featured in a New York Times article: Botany’s New Boys. It describes what is happening with the rejuvenation of the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden and includes Kelly Norris’s background in irises and horticulture. No iris pictures; but, they do have a slideshow of the Botanical Garden and some plants to enjoy. As an aside, Kelly and the Garden are part of the 2017 AIS National Convention so there will be irises to enjoy in the future.
Congratulations to Kelly and everyone at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden!
