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.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Iris douglasiana.
