to the
Greater St. Louis Iris Society!
(Organized circa 1950)
GSLIS Calendar Of Events

Part of the purpose of being an affiliate within the structure of the American Iris Society is to educate the public about irises. The Greater St.Louis Iris Society is organized exclusively for educational, horticultural and scientific purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. We strive to stimulate and foster interest in the culture of the genus Iris. To that end we have a number of iris meetings, programs, auctions and sales that are open to the general public.
