Douglas Iris, Iris douglasiana is a knee high perennial with rhizomes that spread slowly into a 2 to 4 ft wide clump. The flowers arise on a 1 to 2 ft high stem, are cream to light purple and three inches wide. Douglas Iris is native from Santa Barbara to Oregon and likes full sun near coast, afternoon shade inland, some summer water. Fast growing near the coast, but slow inland. This iris prefers richer soils, such as clay, with organic matter, and is not happy here when the winters are cold(snow) and the soil gravelly. Does fabulous in the runoff of buildings. That little ditch that the water runs down the the street in is a perfect place for Iris. No rain gutters, plant Douglas Iris.
Mix with bolders, Zauschneria and Wayne Roderick to make a really cool planter bed.

Iris douglasiana tolerates sand, clay, serpentine and seasonal flooding.

Iris douglasiana's foliage color is green-gray and type is evergreen.
