Pacific Coast Hybrids
A rainbow of colors from a hardy coastal native!
Ok. We’ll be honest. Pacific Coast Hybrid Irises have a reputation of being garden divas. They are stunningly gorgeous in flower but relatively fussy when you compare them with other irises (especially tough bearded iris). But here’s the truth – some of the best things in life are things you have to work a little harder for, right? These show-stopping plants are like that.
It may take a try or two to find the perfect location for your Pacific Coast Hybrids (well-drained acidic soil, winter rain, dry summers, and partial shade) but once you do you will be rewarded with marvelous jewel-toned flowers with intricate markings in amazing color combos. (Iris is the Greek word for rainbow, which describes these flowers perfectly!)
Pacific Coast Hybrids grow knee-high with evergreen foliage and the foliage is the perfect backdrop for the 2’ tall flower spikes. Plant these along walks where you can enjoy the flowers up close or at the back of the garden in large drifts where they will catch the eye like few flowers can. These natives look great planted in big groups and will give your whole garden a colorfully romantic look in the spring and summer.
They might take some work to start, but once they are established Pacific Coast Hybrids will be the star divas in your garden! Order today!
