Pacific coast irises

Posted: 17/07/2016 at 12:05

Tried I. innominata but if I click on any of the uk sites I just get nothing but the name as nobody seems to have it. I will try some of the others and will speak to Broadleigh when I am at Tatton on Wednesday. 


I grow the native ones but only one will grow in shade whereas the pacific coast ones will nearly all grow in shade and the ones I have are lovely, under my deciduous trees. 


Thanks to all of you who have tried to help

Dear all


Checked the Broadleigh brochure and they are not on there when i try it on their web site they send me to minnature ones, CheckedChiltern seeds and they only sell seed for one miniature one and have often bout form Kellways but they do not sell them either. I am going to Tatton and will look for them there but do not hold out a lot of hope. A Spanish company used to sell them but they don't either anymore.

Does anyone know where I can get Pacific coast Irises? I have a few and they are wonderful growing in shade but Broadliegh gardens, where I bought them, no longer seem to stock them anymore and I would love a few more colours as I only have a purple/ Blue coloured one and I have just read that they look lovely against rhododendrons.

you are right it is Cupea Llavea we are just finding out if it is black face or cha cha, though we are fairly certain it is blackface.

I have a hedgehog hiberanting in my bark shreddrings does anyone know when it will wake up as I am rather fed up with having dumpy bags of bark shreddings in my front garden but having found the one hedgehog and quickly covered it up with the amount of shreddings I had removed before I found it I decidded that ther may be others so don't dare emptying any of them. I took a quick peek carefully last week and it is still there. I have checked, it is alive.
