Our objective as French National Iris Collection Conservancy

Our first aim is to give back the prominence to the French Iris that it held before the American "tidal wave" hit the scene, and especially to offer an "academy" where visitors can see for themselves what a century has brought to the evolution of such a beautiful flower.
Guided tours are available free of charge during the festival "Les Iris pleins les yeux", usuallyduring the last weekend of May. You will discover and learn to appreciate the Iris, which in the past had both religious significance and was a royal emblem.
We offer an ordering service whereby, using our own collection or that of other producers, visitors can purchase their favourite varieties. Some of these varieties have today disappeared from catalogues and in this way their heritage can be protected.
Lastly, in allowing passionate gardeners to meet here, we wish to make the Conservancy a centre for the exchange and dissemination of the wealth of shared knowledge.
