IRIS HAVEN is a specialist, mail-order, Louisiana iris nursery, located in Sydney, Australia.
Proprietors, Heather & Bernard Pryor, are hybridisers of world-class Louisiana irises. IRIS HAVEN was created to enable them to share their gardening passion with others.
Welcome! Well, we are back again for our seventeenth cyber version of our website. We hope that you like the improvements; the clearer photos and the additional information we have recently incorporated into the pages.
The 2012/2013 season will celebrate a number of wonderful new releases by South Australian hybridiser, Mr. Peter Jackson. Please see the 'Peter Jackson New Release' page for details of his stunning cultivars.
The Premier Release cultivar for IRIS HAVEN in the 2012/13 season will be the fabulous deep sky-blue self, DONNA WOLFORD. Donna is a very dear friend and an avid Louisiana iris enthusiast. We were delighted to be given the opportunity to name this spectacular cultivar in her honour. DONNA WOLFORD has been available in the USA from our agents, Iris City Gardens, in Primm Springs TN, for a number of years and it is with great pride that we officially release it now in its country of origin. Stock numbers are limited (as we keep having to export rhizomes to the USA to keep up with demand in the northern hemisphere) so grab a rhizome of DONNA WOLFORD while you can... ** UPDATED DETAILS AS AT 29.1. 2013 - DONNA WOLFORD is sold out until 2013/14 season due to high demand.**
Our northern hemisphere shipping period will re-open from about mid March, 2013 onwards and will close at the end of July, 2013. Customers from the United Kingdom and Singapore joined our 'family' of avid collectors this year - and we welcome you to the exciting world of Louisiana iris growing!
Southern hemisphere shipping will re-commence from approx. 31st December, 2012 onwards until approx. 30th June, 2013. Please note that this season opening date is approximately two weeks later than normal and the closure date is approximately one month earlier than normal.
Please contact our US agents, Iris City Gardens, if you wish to obtain any of our cultivars - and if you live in the USA. If you live elsewhere in the northern hemisphere - please contact us to ascertain current stock listings. Similarly, please contact our NZ agents, Rivendell Iris gardens, if you wish to obtain any of our cultivars - and you live in New Zealand.
As in the past, we have now split our General Louisiana Iris Catalogue listing into three sections. Page 6 is the listing of cultivars available from A-G, Page 9 is the listing of cultivars from H-O inclusive and Page 3 is the listing of Louisiana iris cultivars from P-Z inclusive. By splitting the pages we've been able to load more photos.
However, both our regular-height Louisiana iris cultivars AND our shorter-growing 'Water Sprite' cultivars are grouped in straight alphabetical order on the two pages noted above. All of the shorter-growing 'Water Sprite' cultivars are clearly denoted as such.
We have done our best to load as many photos as possible onto these pages, but we have reduced the photo size to allow ease of loading for our non-broadband customers. Should you wish to receive a larger photo of any cultivar, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - and we will be happy to send it to you via email.
We've also expanded our Water & Bog Iris/Water & Bog Plant page (page 7) to include an expanded ragne of iris Virginica cultivars - some of which are from our own breeding programmes.
Customers in Australia need to note that all prices on this website are listed WITHOUT GST. When ordering, you need to add the GST payable. Our overseas customers can just work with the prices as listed, as there is no GST payable on export shipments.
AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS WILL NEED TO ADD 10% GST TO THE PRICES NOTED ON THIS WEBSITE.
Our nursery will remain closed to the public during 2012/2013. We will, however, continue to provide our efficient mail order service to every customer. By keeping our premises closed, we are able to keep our running costs down to a minimum - and this translates to better prices for our customers. I need to note here a very friendly reminder that we are not open to the public, as our premises is not set-up for public visitations. Please don't ask us to open for you to inspect our premises, as we are a mail order nursery ONLY.
Heather will continue with her programme of garden club visits during 2013. If you are intending to visit any of the events listed on the 'What's Happening' page, please drop by to say hi. Details of Heather's outings - and IRIS HAVEN exhibition details can be found on our "What's Happening At Iris Haven" page (page 8).
If we can assist you further in any way - please don't hesitate to contact us via email, telephone or fax. Until then - happy gardening to one and all.
