Sherwood Pink

Discover Sherwood Pink, a Perfect Pink Bearded Iris from our Collection of Award Winning British Bearded Irises.

Building Your Collection

This Perfect Pink Bearded Iris is exceptional, with perfect flower shape and classic ‘Dodsworth’ branching; it is also scented.

Sherwood Pink is a stunning new pink from a batch of later seedlings. This iris is outstanding, the very last to flower in my garden by nearly a week. Its one of my favourites, a great addition to your iris collection.

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 Sherwood Pink, it is worth considering one further option. Grow Century Pink with Sherwood Pink,  just a little shorter (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

Our Irises combine clear clean colours, great branching and perfect flower shape to create a ‘Perfect’ Iris.

Remember too that this Pink Bearded Iris mixes particularly well with all colour groups: ‘Cools’ (Blues and Whites), ‘Softs’ (Lilac/Pale Yellow and other Pinks) and ‘Hots (Deep Yellow, Orange, Reds and Mulberry).

This iris is highly versatile and a ‘must’ for any iris collection.
