Most likely Iris douglasiana. Not sure of hardiness, but I had it for
years here in Canberra, until I lost it in the grass to neglect. I really
liked it to. Haven't seen it for sale since. Flowers are blue. They're
related to the Pacific Coast Natives (Iris innominatas etc) in fact I think
that it is one of the 4 species used in the creation of the modern hybrids.
Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8
Growing.... Galanthus, Erythroniums, Fritillarias, Crocus, Cyrtanthus,
Liliums, Hellebores, Aroids, Irises plus just about anything else that
