The 2017 Cayeux Catalogue has been published!


Dear Sir/ Madam,

Our new iris catalogue has just been printed and the first copies will be sent to our faithful clients as of 3rd of April.

This catalogue is quite unique in Europe and lists 661 iris varieties: tall bearded irises, intermediate bearded irises, standard and miniature dwarf bearded iris but also Iris Sibirica and Water irises.

Over 200 varieties are Cayeux hybrids introduced between 1906 and 2017, which is a token of quality and, for us, the pride of perpetuating a French tradition dating back to the 19th Century.

In the event you don’t receive the catalogue by the 15th of April, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to send you a copy. And if you know of people who might be interested, please give us their address so we can send them the catalogue.

In winter take the time to choose your new irises !
