In addition to the Apogon Iris, Treat also is a member of the Herb Society, where she, among other things, has learned how to properly grow English rose, basil, lemon basil and different mints. The latter can't be grown too close to each other, not even in pots, she said.

Lawson considers herself more of a grower than a designer, though she — like Treat — is an accredited judge and serves as current chairwoman of the Oklahoma Council of Nationally Accredited Flower Show Judges.
Lawson remembers attending garden club meetings and lunches in Oklahoma City with her maternal grandmother. She, Treat and Smathers very much want the heritage to continue to grow and flourish, so that younger members will reap the friendships and skills they say they‘ve gleaned.
