Welcome to Twyford Irises. We specialise in growing mainly tall bearded irises in our nursery in the beautiful and fertile Hawke’s Bay. The nursery is now closed for the season. Orders for 2022 from our full range can still be made via the Contact Us page or you can now purchase gift cards for that special person.

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

Our nursery showcases the Hawke’s Bay Iris Collection, featuring irises bred locally, including dwarf, median, border, intermediate and of course 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.
