  This set of Pacifica irises came to me with names attached, or are specimens of an iris species.
 
Lavender Iris
douglasiana

 
 
 I started out with three plants of this species. None have survived (probably they were getting too much water from an adjoining lawn), but a seedling came up and is doing well.

 A hybrid of I. douglasiana, bought from Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery.

'Canyon Snow'
 
 
 A hybrid developed by the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

'Easter
Parade'

 
 
 A small plant with short flower stems, but the flowers are among the brightest colored.
Images: flower (65 KB), another flower (67 KB), and another flower (72 KB).
 
'Joey'
 
 
 One of the more commonly available cultivars, with dark red falls, yellow-apricot spots and apricot standards.

'Sea Gal'
 
 
 The tallest iris I have, with stems at least two feet tall, bearing ruffled blue flowers.

'Triple
Heart'

 
 
 Another commonly found hybrid.
Images: flower (67 KB), another flower (72 KB), another flower (73 KB), another flower (67 KB), and with a pale lavender iris (I think the color is wrong on the last photo). (65 KB)
