Description :

RARE (*)

Iris innominata or Del Norte County iris is native to the rocky highlands (300 - 2000m) of south-west Oregon and northern California.

It forms an attractive rounded clump with dark green, sometimes shiny foliage, 20 cm in height. The flowers appear in April-May after a short spring growing period.

Golden flowers with brown stripes.

This is an easy plant to combine with others! We love to match this attractive little coppery-leaved iris with (Stipa arundinacea, Carex testacea, Carex buchananii, Carex comans 'Bronze Form') and the graceful salmon flowering of Tritonia laxifolia. (**)

An Asian candelabra primrose (Primula bulleyana) will prolong the display until the beginning of the summer with its delicate flowering of orange and icing sugar blooms.

Just because this plant is rare and unknown does not mean it's difficult to grow! Iris innominata likes fresh, damp winters and hot, dry summers, a sun that is not scorching or a little shade, and to grow in soft, humus-rich, neutral to slightly acid soil. Easy, no?

(*) Our mother plant comes from from Jocelyne's garden Brittany, which she tends with passion and talent. After several growing years, we are delighted to include it in our 2014-2015 botanical collection. And delighted to know that this adorable plant will fill you with wonder!
