  • Seed Exchange with seeds of aril species, arilhybrids, and arilbreds.
    Newsletter (three issues per year) with informative articles, announcements, show schedules, and a”Letters to the Editor” section
  • Yearbook containing articles on culture, species habitat, hybridizing, scientific research, and the latest introductions, as well as many color photos
  • Robins to help you become acquainted with other aril and arilbred growers in the US and abroad

By joining ASI you help support the research and the international network of Aril iris enthusiasts.
