Membership

The rolls of SJI include outstanding iris specialists, gardening experts and horticulturists with interests in many kinds of ornamentals, but the Society is primarily for the amateur gardener who enjoys growing Japanese irises.

SJI Membership brings you…

  • An informative culture sheet, free to new members, on raising Japanese irises.
  • The SJI Review, with 2 issues each year averaging 54 pages of interesting feature articles on iris varieties, culture, hybridizing, exhibiting, and many other iris subjects.
  • A wide range of activities at the national, and local level, including the national meetings, conventions, garden tours and round robin corresponding groups, display gardens, exhibitions, and special programs for the enjoyment of SJI members.
  • Up to the minute information on award winning irises, and the privilege of voting in the “Annual Popularity Poll” of favorite irises.
  • A library and slide collection offering various books and publications, which can be rented by members. Helpful sources for assistance with your technical problems in culture and hybridizing, or in finding rare species, out of print articles, and valuable hybridizing records.

You are cordially invited to become a member of the SJI. You can join either by regular mail, using this SJI printable Membership Form or online via PayPal with either a PayPal account or by using a credit card thru the PayPal service.
