Pacific Coast Irises

These posts about Pacific Coast irises have me wondering: is anyone on the East Coast growing them now?
In an article by Don Humphrey in the libretto Rock Gardening in the Greater Washington, D.C., Region published (in 2001) by our local NARGS chapter, the Potomac Valley Chapter, Humphrey wrote: "Most of the West Coast irises also do well here in northern Virginia and come easily from seed. Iris douglasiana, probably the easiest, is also one of the largest. Several plants, planted many years ago, have formed a solid carpet about three feet wide...Iris innominata is, I think, the star of the group with its delicate narrow foliage and lovely, yellow flowers."
Any West Coast iris growers out there among the East Coast lurkers?
