Pacific Coast Irises

First off the tadpoles have hatched, that was a few days ago. Not to bad, it took about two weeks. When they get a little bigger I will try to take a picture, they are soooooo tiny. The Pacific Coast Irises are blooming in the gardens. Being a Pacific Coast native they are perfect for the Pacific Northwest drought tolerant garden. Thanks to growers in California and Oregon, we now have a lovely array of iris cultivars known as the Pacific Coast hybrids (PCH). Blossom colors can range from white to light lavender to deep plum and a standard height of 18". Compact, lancelike foliage is glossy, evergreen, and pest resistant. These irises enjoy deep watering during the dry season; however, they are drought tolerant once established.
