Iris 'Spinning Sarah'
‘Spinning Sarah’ is one of our own pacific cost iris hybrids. This is a pre registration introduction and there are limited numbers. As you can see by the picture ‘Spinning Sarah’ has big lavender flowers. It also grows quite well in Southern California.
Pacific coast iris species are native to coastal California through Washington State. In the
warmer regions like southern California pacific coast irises and their hybrids need to grow in shaded areas. When planting pacific coast irises they need to be planted a bit higher than the surrounding soil line so the water drains away from the center of the iris. In areas like Oregon and Washington where the sun is not as intense they can grow in full sun. They need well drained soil and weekly watering to get them established. Once established they’re pretty much on their own. Less water is better than extra water since rotting is the biggest problem when growing them. Spring blooming – generally ranging from 6” to 15” tall.
