Red Pike

Discover Red Pike, an outstanding Red Bearded Iris from our Award Winning Collection of British Bearded Irises

A sumptuous velvet red and one of the best ‘reds’ available . It has the classic ‘Dodsworth’ form and structure. Notoriously hard to hybridise, this red iris  is much admired, a really striking plant.

The original name ‘Chateau Lafitte’ describes the true depth and intensity of colour, but was changed for legal reasons. Now named after a favourite Lakeland fell that lies between between Ennerdale and Buttermere.

Building Your Iris Collection

Plant this outstanding Red Bearded Iris as a stand alone iris, in a group or in blocks. Brilliant when planted with other  ‘Hots’ (Orange/ Magenta/Tan); try mixing with plant ‘Softs’ (Pinks/Yellows). The effects are stunning. This is one of my all-time favourites.

Bred by Bryan Dodsworth and registered in 1995. 44” (112cm). Standards and falls ruffled brown; beards brown.
