IrisUmbria.it

A plant nursery in the heart of Umbria, specialising in bearded irises.  By enthusiasts, for enthusiasts.

Our display gardens will open in May 2019, showing well over 600 types of irises, alongside roses and peonies.  See our catalogue for those irises currently available for online purchase, for delivery bare root in autumn 2019. Browse here.

Irises are not the backdrop, the supporting cast - steady, reliable and always doing their bit for the collective in the garden. No. They are the aristocrats, the stars, the fashionistas of the garden, who blaze for their moment of sublime glory and then bow out.  So here is a red carpet, a catwalk of incomparable style and beauty, ranging from classical elegance to fairy tale princess to cyber-punk.
