As its common name “Oregon Iris” implies, this wildflower is native to Oregon, as well as Washington and California. A great choice for wildflower planting in meadows, gardens, or along roadsides! The flowers bloom in mid to late spring and are usually lavender-blue to purple, but blooms in white, yellow, pink, and orchid shades are known to sometimes occur! Its foliage is exceptionally narrow for an iris causing the plant to sometimes be mistaken for a grass when not in bloom. Native Americans used fibrous leaves to make strong, pliable rope and cord and for braiding into snares.
