Douglas Iris at Port Orford on the Oregon Coast

Photo by Lance nix 2005

Photographer Lance Nix found these Iris Douglasiana growing along one of the walking trails on Coast Guard Hill (aka the Port Orford Heads State Wayside) in Port Orford on the southern Oregon Coast. The photo well illustrates the broad, bifacial leaves (one side shiny, the other matt) typical of Douglas Iris. Click on Lance's name in the tagline to see the original photo in his Flicker album.
