West Texas Iris Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit AIS Region 17 member and an American Iris Society affiliate.  WTIS meets at 7 pm the first Thursday of each month, February through October at the Community & Senior Services Center, 3301 Sinclair, Midland, Texas. Everyone is invited to attend the meetings and learn about the beautiful versatile and easy to grow iris.  We hope you would like to join us for all the benefits of newsletters, free iris, fun, and friendship as well.  Dues are $7.50 per year for single memberships or $10.00 per year for families or couples.  For information call 432-697-6340.

During the year we host our annual iris show and rhizome sale as opportunities to educate the public about the many types, and colors of iris, as well, as how to dig, plant, and grow the rainbow flowers. We will do design classes about doing iris floral arrangements, have programs on how to divide, plant, and grow iris in our climate.  We have programs on how to enter and win awards at our annual show. WTIS is honored to have two American Iris Society certified judges, and the current Region 17 Vice President. Another objective of our project is to reach out to everyone including garden enthusiasts to show them how versatile, inexpensive and easy to grow the iris family is.  Iris like AIS and WTIS are non-discriminating, anyone and everyone are welcome and can grow them.
