Sass Memorial Iris Garden
Built and maintained by members of Greater Omaha Iris Society in the
1970's to showcase historic iris in a beautiful garden setting. This garden is
devoted to the pioneering iris hybridizing work done by Hans, Jacob,

irises, as well as varieties which have won the American Iris
Society Dykes Medal or the Hans and Jacob Sass Medal.
