■ (SPEC) Iris innominata L. F. Hend.

1930, Henderson

Iris innominata Louis Forniquet Henderson (Collected by Mrs. John R. Leach, 1928, Curry County, Oregon) Cal (Series Californicae);

Colorful, with , height 6-10" (15-25 cm); Color Code-Y4M; Flowers cream, buff, yellow or orange shades with reddish to brown veins; foliage is narrow-leaved, dark green and evergreen, forming attractive dense clumps with sprawling leaves and flower stems.

The blue to purple flowered plants formerly were included in Iris thompsonii, and recent authors confirm the separation of these closely allied species. More recently, Iris thompsonii was separated out on non-flower-color characters, retaining cream and warm color forms for I. innominata.

I. innominata grows in southern Oregon in Coos, Curry, Douglas and Josephine Counties, on serpentine soils, in shaded to partly shaded sites. It hybridizies naturally with other species found in this area, including I. tenax, I. douglasiana, I. chrysophylla and I. bracteata. This species grows over a wide range of elevations, and confers both hardiness and color to hybrid PCIs.
