For my Cal. native gardeners as you all know there's a lot of seasonality to what we do and the early you can get your pacific coast irises and plant them, the better. Many of ours "mixed" and named are ready to plant out. The 1-gallon mixed pci's are $10/1-gallon container(mixed and $12 named) the 3Gallons are $25 each.
