The Miller Garden celebrates 20 years of being open to the public this year! The 2014 Miller Lecture will follow this commemorative theme on September 11th. The Lecture will feature three people who knew Mrs. Miller from different aspects of her life: Valerie Easton, Dan Hinkley, and Steve Lorton.
Prior to the lecture there will be two Great Plant Picks fundraising dinners at the Garden this month and next. Two of the three lecture speakers, Val Easton and Steve Lorton will be the guests of honor at the Sunset Dinners. Both have great memories and stories about Mrs. Miller to share.

Patrick’s energies have since become focused on Japanese, Arilbred, Louisiana, Spuria, and species irises, while Margaret’s interests have grown around Pacific Coast, Siberian, and species irises. Patrick has also taken an interest in hybridizing irises, primarily Japanese and Arilbred. He began meeting and conversing with many of the U.S. hybridizers to learn the tips and tricks of the trade.
