Iris PCH 'Purple' (Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris) - This Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris features purple flowers. The clumps of tough evergreen foliage grow to 12 to 18 inches tall and spreads to 2 to 3 feet wide. Flowers in spring. Looks to be the same as the cultivar 'Triple Heart'. Plant in cool sun to light shade with occasional summer watering. 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.  Information presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it the nursery's garden and in other gardens we visit as well, as well as in our nursery crops in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing  Iris PCH 'Purple'.
