Douglas Iris : Iris douglasiana
Arching green blades; flowers pale pink to indigo. Douglas iris is handsome in all its phases.
This plant slowly spreads to form clumps in meadows or along the borders of your yard. It does best in full-sun to part shade, likes to keep its feet wet (but drought tolerant once established), and excels in humus rich soil (not the garbarnzo variety hummus but dark brown dirt variety :)).
Native people in Mendocino used its leaf edges to make ropes and nets to snare deer. Douglas iris commonly blooms in spring throughout the Redwood forest floor.
