Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Canoga Park Women's Club, 7401
Jordan Avenue at the corner of Valerio and Jordan, 2 blocks east of Topanga Canyon Blvd, between Sherman Way and Saticoy St. Refreshments, beginning at 7:00 pm, provide an
opportunity for all to socialize. At 7:30 pm a brief business meeting is convened, followed by the evening's program.
Throughout the year the monthly programs focus on a
wide array of topics pertaining to irises, and, on occasion, to compatible companion plants. Two very popular potluck dinner meetings are held each year in December and June.
SFVIS members receive a copy of the society's newsletter, "Irisarian," The monthly "Irisarian" serves as a timely
"bulletin board" by providing members with details of the next meeting, with a calendar of dates for upcoming Region 15 and SFVIS events, and with information about
important SFVIS issues.
One of the premiere SFVIS events held each Spring is an
American Iris Society sanctioned horticultural and artistic competition for members and the public to exhibit well grown, well groomed irises to be judged for awards. The SFVIS
Annual Spring Show also offers an artistic competition for floral arrangements featuring Iris.
conducts a local garden trek of outstanding member gardens each Spring, timed to coincide with peak iris bloom in the San Fernando Valley.
Most monthly meetings include a plant table where anyone can purchase Iris, and
other companion plants and bulbs at bargain prices. All plants offered by the
plant table are donated by our members.
