Welcome to the website of the Group for Beardless Irises. The Group was formed in June 1976 as a section of The British Iris Society to foster interest in beardless irises
around the world by the exchange of ideas, seeds and plants. In those days, the internet was a dim distant prospect, but given the web's
importance today and the ability it gives to publish information at low cost, the Group decided at the start of 2010 to try a period of free 'web membership'. Accordingly, you will find
on the website our latest publications which you can download and enjoy without charge. Browse through the navigation menu on the left to find out more.
