     Conventions and shows are one of the great places to see and learn about irises.  Both the Society for Louisiana Irises and the American Iris Society have annual conventions, and in 2018, in a first, both will be held in New Orleans, back to back.

    A website specifically for the 2018 AIS and SLI conventions has been created at:      

    You will find the information you need on this site, including complete registration information (soon).  Check back from time to time for updates.
