Why order from Cayeux?

  • Our family has over 100 years of experience in breeding irises culminating in 2009 when the American Iris Society awarded Richard Cayeux the Warburton medal for his contributions to the genus Iris.


  • Our catalogue features, among the 570 iris varieties, some 120 iris hybrids created by four generations of the Cayeux family: wonderful combinations of colour and form, often hard to find elsewhere in Europe.
