Iris-Talk explained...  (updated February 8 2009) 

This is an internet mailing list devoted to discussion on garden irises. Both experienced irisarians and beginners are welcome. If you grow, breed, or study irises, want to learn how, or just want to join the conversation, you are invited to subscribe.

This is an e-mail discussion group for posting iris messages. You must be a subscribed member of the list to be able to post messages. The e-mail address for posting messages once you are subscribed is: iris@hort.net

This is the largest on-line iris discussion group and is open to anyone wishing to discuss just about anything relating to any type of iris. There are hundreds of subscribers worldwide, although most are from the USA. Many are members of the AIS (American iris Society) but non-members are certainly welcome and encouraged to join as well. The Iris-Talk mailing list is hosted by the website: www.hort.net/lists/iris/
