Pacific Coast Iris, PCIs, "Pacificas", or PCHs (Pacific Coast iris hybrids) are now widely available on the West Coast from Iris societies, native plant societies, botanical gardens, university horticultural sales and commercial nurseries. Most nurseries are open to the public, although it is best to call ahead. They are also a source of mail order PCI seeds and plants. Some have special Open House dates with organized tours, displays and exhibits, like the Table of Native Edibles at Larner's Seeds in Bolinas.
