It's not a pacific coast bulb by any stretch of the imagination but my Iris 
cretensis (aka: Iris unguicularis ssp. cretensis) has been blooming off & 
on for the last month.  Last winter we had a warm spell in January and it 
bloomed then too.  Normally this flower can be expected to bloom in 
March... but give it a few days of temps in the 50's (sorry, don't know 
what that is in Celsius) and it will try to bloom any time during the winter.
