Welcome to the home page of the British Iris Society.

The British Iris Society was founded in 1922 by iris enthusiasts whose interests were primarily to establish a forum for the exchange of views and knowledge of the genus. It is open to all, and confined to neither academics nor "experts", and over the years has attracted lovers of irises who wish to enjoy and share the delights and beauty of these flowers.

On this website you will find a basic guide to the irises and for the more adventurous a detailed A-Z. Information about the BIS is here as well as a list of its events and sub-groups. Many pages contain pictures, if you click on the them you will usually get a better view. Use your back button to return.

We hope you will enjoy this site and come to share our love, excitement and interest in Irises.

The British Iris Society is registered with The Charity Commission - number 261896
