Welcome to Twyford Irises. We specialise in growing gorgeous tall bearded irises in our nursery in the beautiful and fertile Hawke’s Bay.

We have eleven new introductions this season, bred in New Zealand by Alison and David Nicoll and also by Gail Barth. This year from the nursery only, we will also have a variety of perennials for sale at very reasonable prices.

It’s easy to become addicted to these fabulous plants. What other plant offers so many different varieties, colours and styles and what better gift than a living plant that will reward for many years to come.

Nursery Opening Hours – during peak flowering, usually from mid October until early December. Group bookings for visits are welcome.

A large selection of bagged irises are available from the nursery all year round. Please contact us first if you are calling outside of the main flowering time. Orders from the previous year can be collected directly from the nursery or if prearranged will be posted from January onwards.

Bare-rooted irises can be purchased online most times of the year and will be sent via NZ post. Postage costs are fixed but if you are purchasing five or less please contact us for a lower rate. Bagged irises can be couriered, again please contact us to ascertain the courier costs.

Please be aware that plants may not always flower the first season. Also, some rhizomes are smaller than others. Just like us, they come in all shapes and sizes. All are healthy and will grow and flower for you.
