The North East Ohio Iris Society was founded in 1958 as a non-profit organization with the purpose of encouraging its members and the greater Cleveland community to cultivate and appreciate the Genus Iris.

The North East Ohio Iris Society (NEOIS) is an affiliate of the American Iris Society and AIS Region 6 (Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio).

Educational programs, hybridizing training, interesting speakers and friendly members are what NEOIS is all about. Regular meetings are held the second Friday evening of each month except in January. See Events for details of our next meeting.

New members welcome. To join in the fun of growing and appreciating Irises go to Membership for details on how to join. See the Iris 101 section for suggestions on growing and caring for your irises.
