Iris douglasiana | Douglas Iris

Douglas Iris is one of the more forgiving Iris grown in the West. Vigorous growing, it accepts a range of exposures, from sun to shade. As typical of many California natives, accepts more sun near the coast, then less as one moves inland. Long (1 to 3 feet), narrow, sword-shaped leaves adorn plants. Not fussy as to water except avoid soggy soils. Canopy coverage: 3 square feet.
