Welcome to Century Pink, a classy new Pink Bearded Iris. This is a great addition to our stunning range of top notch Award Winning Pink Bearded Irises.
Century Pink is the iris chosen by the British Iris Society to commemorate its Centenary in 2022, and features prominently in their Gold Medal Winning Centenary Stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show that year.
Building Your Collection
This exceptional Pink Bearded Iris has perfect flower shape and classic ‘Dodsworth’ branching; it is also scented and flowers late and right at the end of the iris season. All these factors make it make it a particularly useful iris to have in your garden.
Choosing Pink Irises
If you like ‘Pinks’ as many of our customers do, grow them in sequence. For instance, start with Eileen Louise, follow this with Catherine Seville and before you add Century Pink. It is also worth considering one further option. Grow Century Pink with Sherwood Pink, a little taller (another very late flowering variety), and go out with a bang with a spectacular show of ‘Pinks’ at the end of the iris season.
This makes it the perfect iris to help extend the iris flowering season in your garden – the aim of all iris lovers.
Mixing with other Colours
Century Pink is great on its own and mixes well with all Colour Groups: other ‘Softs’ (Pale Yellow and Pinks), ‘Cools’(Blues/Whites) and the ‘Hots’ (Deep Yellows/Oranges/Browns). It is a highly versatile plant.
