        The Mesilla Valley Iris Society (MVIS) is an affiliate organization of the American Iris Society (AIS) serving the communities in the Mesilla Valley along the Rio Grande in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Our club programs throughout the year include lectures, a judged iris show, and an annual plant sale.  Our membership is comprised of gardeners representing all experience levels from novice to experts with an interest in growing these beautiful plants in our desert environment. Yes! Most varieties grow beautifully in the desert and are heat and drought tolerant!  No! Rabbits do not in general eat irises (unless they are very very hungry). Presentation about the MVIShttps://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bx8xSRt-YuRYZXpqTGl4ZzFKSVU
