CalFlora is one of the most helpful online gateways to a vast array of plant information. You can find site-by-site listings of the places in California where each iris species has been collected. Budget constraints have required user registration and a small annual fee for regular users.

California's Jepson Manual is now available online. It gives a synopsis of each Pacifica iris species and subspecies in the state. You can either scroll down to Monocots - Iridaceae (Iris family), or click on the letter "I" and then scroll down to the various Iris.

State native plant societies: many of their local chapters have their own websites, regional flora references and plant lists, resources and photo galleries:
