There are around 2 to 3 hundred varieties of Irises known in all different colors and forms with most of them containing a fragrance.
The name Iris actually means rainbow in Latin which is very fitting for the range of colors they are found in.
Around ten of the species of Iris are located in the Pacific Northwest and are some of the best known and widely used in gardens.
Of the fifteen or so Iris that are native to the whole of the west coast, seven are at home here in Oregon.
Most grow in colorful drifts in primarily open wooded areas at low elevations west of the Cascades.
