Greetings from the Celtic Iris Gardens and Nursery
in Charlottesville, VA!
 

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

Lavender is world-famous as a natural relaxation herb.  Its gentle color has even become popular as peoples’ favorite.  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, Charlottesville grown items in packages with roses, rosemary and more soft leisurely scents.

Canines and kitties have their distinct playful luxury packages too.  Handmade, cookie cutter, healthy dog treats are baked in Morrisons’ kitchen.  Cheesy biscuits for dogs are baked there too.  Play toys for cats and dogs are stashed away in basket or bags.  Fresh catnip is a euphoric herb for felines and human entertainment. Toy and giggles are also prepared for our precious kittens.  Call (434) 293-7547 to inquire.

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

With more than 130 varieties of cultivars, Celtic Iris Gardens and Nursery is the largest iris, walk-through garden in Charlottesville.  Gift Certificates are available.  We encourage gardeners and artists to walk through and enjoy our inspirational flowers in bloom.

Iris was the Greek Goddess, Messenger of Hope who traveled on a rainbow.  Today, the Iris flower has as many shades of colors as does a rainbow.

Each Spring at the Celtic Iris

 Gardens we watch with joy as a brilliant celebration of colors and new life usher in the gardening season.  This spring our irises presented clients, new friends, as well as artists, with two months’ explosions of glorious sweetsmells, playful colors, and stylish bearing.  Many of our Tall-bearded varieties are Dykes Medal winners. The results of Iris hybridizers continue to surprise and reward Iris collectors from year-to-year.  Showy “Tiger Shark” is topped with tan standards and hints of red; her falls are tan and yellow; maroon stripes, yellow beards.  DM winner “Celebration Song" is a remarkable two-tone TB with apricot pink standards, blue lavender falls and tangerine beards.  “Feature Attraction” is graced with lacey, exquisite frills of cool lavender-violet shades; her sturdy stems produce 8-9 buds.

Our Historic Iris selection continues to expand.  “Zeus,” “Gracchus” reminiscent of orchids etched in white, yellow, and veins of violet, “Mme. Chereau” (Lemon 1844) one of the oldest plicatas still grown are a few examples in our Antique Irises.

How wonderful that iris are Deer Resistant!  This magnificent flower of Royalty, symbolic of the Fleur de lit, is now America’s favorite.  Celtic Iris has plants for sun or shade, or bogs. Species Iris, and Reblooming iris.  Check out our Space Agers, Ensatas (Japanese), and Siberians.

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 Fri., Sat., part of Sunday, we have a side-gate entrance on Galloway Dr.  Folks can buy our herbs and flowers.  Clients can often choose some of their own arrangements.  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! Midst many colorful posies and beautiful blooms, our customers find rare heirloom, and unusual gems of plants. 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 in Celtic Gardens and Nursery.  The Greek God Morpheus has influenced many a wonderful dream after wandering through the spaces. Nannette helps others through their desire to create a space rich in their character. Morrison's talent as a landscape artist can often be viewed in the many Art Shows she participates in.

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 if you are traveling from out of town.  We love meeting new friends.  Please do not bring pets or strollers.  A wide array of photos and our catalogue are available to order from after bloom season. No credit cards accepted.

" These are Gardens of Castles, Kings,

Faeries with Wings,

Lots of Pretty Flowery Things.”

Candles

 
Various candles Rosewater
and fancy bottles

Candles make wonderful gifts for anyone.  “Peacocks and Lavender” candles keep Wellness Relaxation purposes in mind, along with decoration.  Candles can light up a room or lend a romantic, soft glowing aura to a setting.

As with the fragrances of essential oils, those scents in a candle are being extensively used for well-being, which is one of the main keys to health, Candle fire and smoke can be helpful in clearing one’s aura.  Some psychotherapists use a particular blend of oils because of their scents, in a session with a patient.  That same combination or individual scent can be used at home to further their treatment.  The same can be said of candle fragrances.

To see “Peacock n Lavender’s” candle selection or to have one made just for you give us a call at (434) 293-7547  Candle-makers can truly be creative with original ideas!
