IRIS

A large and remarkably diverse group of 200 to 300 species, varying in flower color and form, cultural needs, and blooming periods (although the majority flower in spring or early summer). Leaves are swordlike or grasslike. Flowers (fragrant, in many kinds) are showy and complex in structure.

Iris douglasiana

Native to California and Oregon, usually within the coastal climate zone, and usually under 300-ft. elevations. Flower colors run from purple, blue, chocolate mauve, and lavender to cream, with fine contrasting or yellow tracery. Plants form spreading clumps, often just 8–10 in. tall, but as high as 3 ft. Leaves are dark green, to 1 in. wide; 1 to 9 flowers per branched stem.
