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

We are currently lifting and dividing our nursery stock, bagging up surplus rhizomes and starting to fill our current orders. The stock on the website will be updated shortly.


We have two types of calendars available and a range of blank greeting and thank you cards. Check them out on the Shop page. All photos are of irises grown in the nursery.

Nursery Opening Hours – from mid October until early December each year. Group bookings welcome.

A large selection of bagged irises are available from the nursery otherwise you can order bare-rooted plants which can be collected directly from the nursery or will be posted any time from January through to March.

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 or potted irises can be couriered, again please contact us to ascertain the courier costs.

Please be aware that plants will not always flower the first season.
