Douglas Iris

I found this Douglas Iris Iris douglasiana at a site where the GGNRA's Habitat Restoration Team works along the Bolinas-Fairfax road in Marin County, California. I've worked on this site over many years, and it was nice to see beautiful abundant irises blooming at a spot which, a few years ago, was being invaded by aggressive non-native French Broom.
