Iris douglasiana (Douglas Iris) - This California native perennial is a vigorous growing plant that forms 18 inch tall by 36 inch or more wide clumps of arching, evergreen leaves. The lavender-blue to near white flowers appear in spring on 1 to 2 foot tall branched or unbranched stems. Our form is entirely pale blue. Plant in full sun to light shade on the coast and light shade inland with occasional water. It is hardy to <15 degrees F. Has an extensive natural range along the coast from Santa Barbara to Oregon. It was named for David Douglas who collected it around 1830 in Monterey County.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Iris douglasiana.
