Novelty Iris Society


The Novelty Iris Society (NIS), a section of the American Iris Society, was organized in 2014 and accepted by the AIS as a section club in May 2015. It was formed by a group of iris enthusiasts who love the unusual forms and color combinations of the space-age, broken color and variegated foliage.

The annual meeting of the Novelty Iris Society is held each year in conjunction with the American Iris Society’s national convention The NIS publishes an e-newsletter twice a year with articles on hybridizers, information on gardens and other items of interest. For those that do not have an email address, a hard copy will be mailed.

There are several types of NIS memberships. Listed below are the membership rates/selections. (Please note that membership information is not available here for local and regional societies. Check with AIS Regional VPs or local club leaders for those membership rates. See the Local Iris Societies listings on this website).
