With the exception of Iris unguicularis, I'm pretty sure every iris I grow has a very restricted period of bloom - heavily budded stalks might provide a week and a half of bloom. 
I had no idea the West Coast irises bloomed for a matter of months. Is that typical of them as a group? That suggests that they have much greater garden value than I suspected.
