A Special Year

We hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate 100 years of The American Iris Society. The location could be familiar to many, it was the site of the 2016 Convention also held in New Jersey. But, this time it will include lots of different venues not seen previously, such as the New York Botanical Garden, and WavehHill Public Gardens, both in New York. Also, several Optional Tours focusing on New York City. Check all the details on this website. 


international iris competition

For the first time in AIS history, an International Iris Competition in honor of the Centennial Celebration will be held during the convention. Irises from several countries were shipped in the sumer/fall of 2018 to Presby Memorial Iris Gardens. There, they will grow and be cared for until a panel of international judges will be charged with reviewing each one of them in the early days of the Convention. The results will be viewed by Convention attendees, and the winners will be presented with their respective awards during the Closing Banquet. .
