Iris 'Pacific Coast Hybrid'
Pacific Coast Iris
The Pacific Coast Iris are hybridized from native Iris parents. Eleven species of Iris are native to California with habitats across Redwood forests, coastal plains, Oak woodlands, mixed forests, and mountain meadows. The native Iris are perennials, usually evergreen, and usually highly adaptable, taking anything from deep shade to light sun. They range in color from butter yellow to velvet purple and bloom in early spring. The best growing conditions for these Iris hybrids are sunny to lightly shaded places with well-drained soil and moderate to scant water in summer.
