Greater Portland Iris Society
GPIS is a non-profit organization devoted to the study, propagation, and culture of the genus iris. Our primary goal is to stimulate and foster interest in horticultural pursuits relating to iris. To accomplish this, we are devoted to the education of the public through exhibitions, public display gardens, and meetings open to the public. We are an affiliate of The American Iris Society, with many clubs throughout the United States and Canada. To find a club near you go to American Iris Society/Resources and Iris Links/AIS Regional Websites.

If you live in the greater Portland, OR area, like to grow iris and want to learn more about them, we invite you and your family to join us. You need not be a member to sit in on the meetings, enjoy the shows, or find a new treasure at one of the many plant sales, however once you have, we are sure that you will wish to be.
