Pride of Madeira for a Mediterranean Climate

Beautiful Pride of Madeira
Perfect for our Mediterranean Gardens in California

Where do you find a Mediterranean Climate?
1) Southern and Southwestern Australia
2) Central Chile
3) Coastal California - and the San Francisco Bay Area of California where I live
4) Western Cape of South Africa
5) The Mediterranean Basin itself

Wildflowers: Iris douglasiana - Hiking Contra Costa


My daughter and I spotted Iris douglasiuna while hiking around the Lafayette Reservioir, in the East Bay. We live across the San Francisco Bay from the East Bay, also known as Contra Costa - the Other Coast.

Native Iris say 'late spring' to me.
