Peacocks and Lavender (products) is a new addition to our Iris Garden.  We grow several types of lavender, as well as other herbs and spices.

Lavender is world-famous as a natural relaxation herb.  Bath and skin care combinations are also great when carrying lavender scents.  Teas and edibles are tasty when hints of lavender are included.  Peacocks and Lavender creates handmade, items.

Nannette is also a Reiki Master and is passing on wonderful Reiki energy treatments for those in need.

With more than 150 varieties of cultivars, Celtic Iris Gardens and Nursery is the largest iris, walk-through garden in Charlottesville.  Gift Certificates are available. 

Rebloomers are becoming the popular iris of the future.  These require a bit more attention through the summer and are incredibly rewarding with Fall bloom after Spring. 

While we are a small nursery, we are an outdoor florist too.  Mid-week and especially Sat., part of Sunday, we have a side-gate entrance on Galloway Dr.  Folks can buy our herbs, vegetables and flowers. Some specialty creations are presented in baskets; a few are sold in vases, others in sleeves.  We do not deliver flower gifts.

Celtic Gardens is redefining the “Art of the Garden.”   If tulips are your muse, we have them in Spring.  This is a garden of mysteries, surprises, and varied garden art at each bend in its curves.  Faeries have been hard at work through the night painting castles for the next day.  Owls watch over lilies’ growth before dawn.  We have glorious lilies! . Ms. Morrison, owner of the garden, is an experienced artist and Extieriorer Decorater.

Exotic spaces carry a Tropical flair.  Each year we search for new and unusual tall specimens to plant in our jungle space.  Birds and Blooms alike are welcome.  Nannette helps others through their desire to create a space rich in their character.

We are members of the American Iris Society, the British Iris Society, and specialty groups of these.  Please call before your visit: (434) 293-7547  Please do not bring pets or strollers.

" These are Gardens of Castles, Kings,

Faeries with Wings,

Lots of Pretty Flowery Things.”
