AMERICAN IRIS SOCIETY
http://www.irises.org/
This is the national club for Iris in the U.S. that has been in existence since 1927. Information regarding Iris classification, growing tips and award winners can be found here and is inclusive of all types of Iris, not just bearded. Members receive the AIS Bulletin published quarterly with articles pertaining to Iris as well as participation in AIS sanctioned shows and conventions. Membership information is provided on the website.

HISTORICAL IRIS PRESERVATION SOCIETY
http://www.hips-roots.com/
This is a sub-group of the American Iris Society that specializes in the continued preservation and redistribution of historic/antique Iris. In today's world of vibrant and flashy Iris, people tend to forget where these beauties come from. Member privileges include access to the members-only section of the official website, access to forums and the annual publication of ROOTS, the official magazine of HIPS. If you have any interest in historical Iris, please consider becoming a member of this organization.

THE PRESBY MEMORIAL IRIS GARDENS
http://www.presbyirisgardens.org/
Established in 1927, The Presby Memorial Iris Garden, located in Upper Montclair, New Jersey, is perhaps the most prestigious of all Iris gardens in the United States. Strictly a volunteer based garden, it is a living museum of Historic, as well as Modern Iris. For many a generation, Iris hybridizers have donated their creations to the Gardens of the Presby. In 2006, I had the gracious opportunity to donate approximately 270 iris rhizomes to start or refill new beds at The Presby. It is my hope to one day travel the Gardens during bloom time and visit for myself.

AIS CHECK LIST & IRIS REGISTER
http://www.irisregister.com/
This is the official checklist and registry for all Irises. Information includes cultivar name, hybridizer, date of registration and introduction, type, height and description. 1959 to 1999 Checklists are available on the website as notepad documents. A fee is required to use the search engine, as well as Iris outside of the aforementioned dates.

AIS IRIS ENCYCLOPEDIA
http://www.wiki.irises.org
Sponsored by the American Iris Society, you can search for various Iris cultivars, find their registry information and photographs of them.

HERITAGE IRISES
http:www.historiciris.blogspot.com/
This is Terry Johnson's Blog of the many wonderful Irises being grown in New Zealand. Of particular note are the many wonderful photographs the late Jean Stevens, New Zealand's premier Iris hybridizer, creator of PINNACLE and many ground-breaking Iris.

IRISENLIGNE
http://www.irisenligne.blogspot.com/
This is Sylvain Ruaud's Blog of the Iris. The blog is entirely in French, but many browers are now equipped with translators. Lots of historical knowledge about Iris to be learned.
