Nazareth Iris Iris bismarckiana

A rare species, the Iris bismarckiana (Nazareth Iris) is limited to just a few populations in its endemic Israel, and has cream/brown flowers. Safeguard the future of the rare Nazareth Iris in the Kew Seed Bank by adopting its entire species and make a truly memorable gift for the birth of a child.

You can adopt this entire species as a gift for £1,000. Your donation will be used to maintain the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership, ensure this species is kept safe forever in the vaults, and to collect more species in the future.

In addition to receiving your adoption pack featuring your certificate and photograph of the species (this will be posted to you, or the recipient), you will also be invited to a behind the scenes tour of the Millennium Seed Bank, at Wakehurst. You'll meet the staff and see the vaults where your species is stored.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Jill Taylor on 020 8332 3248 or
