  • date of photo  May 10, 2013
  • location   Henry Hagg Lake, OR (Washington County, Oregon, US)
  • family Iridaceae
  • plant community   Open young second-growth Douglas fir
  • notes   I took my mom on an iris-hunting road trip to Oregon where we encountered many color forms. The majority of iris clumps grow near and along logging roads in recently (5-7 yrs.) logged and replanted land. Many color combos were growing about. We witnessed color variations in each floral clump, possibly due to flower age, individual genetics and intermixing of neighbor plant's seeds.
