Iris PCH hybrid 'Joey' (Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris) - This very vigorous Pacific Coast Iris is a good grower and heavy bloomer with brownish-yellow flowers with maroon red markings. The clumps of tough evergreen foliage grow to 18 inches and spread to 2-3 feet. Flowers in spring. The flowers of this cultivar are smaller than many other hybids but the flower color and vigor of the plant make up for this. As with other Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris, plant in a light acidic soil in full sun (coastal only), light shade, morning or late afternoon shade and water sparingly in coastal areas and more regularly inland. Plants are hardy to 15-20 degrees F or slightly lower for short duration. Transplanting or dividing and replanting should be done in December. In heavy alkaline conditions that are often found in southern California soils the addition of peat moss or soil sulfur is recommended, and with very heavy soils gypsum is added.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have 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 PCH 'Joey'.
