I found this naturally occurring hybrid at the intersection of the species Iris tenax and Iris douglasiana in the southern Oregon coast range. This is a sturdy evergreen large clump forming Iris with large pale lilac flowers with intricate markings on each lower petal. Full sun to part shade in virtually any soil with little summer water. Excellent plant for wild areas. Cold hardy. Leaf clumps look excellent year round. Highly deer resistant. Oregon native plant.
