Iris douglasiana, Douglas Iris
With a gorgeous color range from delicate cream to rich lilac to deepest velvety purple, this native iris is found throughout the coast ranges of California, in both sun and part shade. Spreads rapidly and is drought-tolerant. Excellent under oaks and in wildflower meadows, it often blooms as early as February and sometimes well into the spring. Easy to grow from seed and stunningly beautiful.
When we run out of seeds, we sell Douglas Iris rhizomes beginning in November.
