GNOIS welcomes new members. We have made the dues low, just ten dollars, to make the organization accessible. Anyone, however, can enjoy many of our public activities regardless of membership, including our quarterly meetings.
If you are interested in learning more about Louisiana irises and getting more irises for your garden, GNOIS activities are a great way to do it. Everyone who attends a meeting goes home with one or more irises, and you will find many long time growers at meetings and other activities who are happy to share what they have learned. To join GNOIS, just complete and mail the membership form you can download here.
An email address is especially important to provide if you have one, because all our notices of activities and our newsletters are distributed that way. If you do not have an email address, be sure to provide a phone number so someone can call you about important iris events.
The Society for Louisiana Irises is the principal organization devoted to these plants. Once a primarily local organization, SLI now has a national and international base reflecting all the areas of the country and world in which Louisiana irises thrive. The publications of SLI provide the most in depth information available on these plants, including a beautiful quartely magazine, Fleur de Lis.
