Himalayan Iris Iris clarkei

This small Himalayan Iris (Iris clarkei) has medium sized flowers which range in colour from deep blue to violet, with a contrasting yellow patch. Adopting the entire species of the small Himalayan Iris makes a unique and unusual wedding present, safeguarding its future in the Millennium Seed Bank.

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
