We have been badly affected by Cyclone Gabrielle and have suspended all orders for the foreseeable future.

Welcome to Twyford Irises. We specialise in growing mainly tall bearded irises in our nursery in the beautiful and fertile Hawke’s Bay. Our 2022 season is now finished. If you would like to place an order for 2023 please use the Contact Us tab and tell us what you would like. We will contact you in late February / early March once we know what we can supply.

Irises purchased online will be sent bare-rooted via NZ Post (unless being collected from the nursery).

Our nursery also showcases the Hawke’s Bay Iris Collection, featuring bearded irises bred locally, including dwarf, median, border, intermediate and tall bearded irises. These are also for sale. Check out the HB Collection.

It’s easy to become addicted to these fabulous easy care 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 – Friday to Sunday from 10am to 3pm, usually from Labour Weekend until the end of flowering, about the end of November. At other times by arrangement. Group bookings for visits to the nursery are also 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 are collected directly from the nursery or if prearranged will be posted from January onwards.

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.
