Have This Year's Iris Bloomed In Maryland?
I moved into a new house last fall and am going through my first year of identifying the plants in the yard. I was gone all through the month of May, and one week of June, so I missed seeing what bloomed then.
I have what I think are iris growing in part of the yard - but now I'm not so sure.
Since I want to move the iris away where they are at, I started digging them up, and they just seem to be green stems with roots. I haven't rinsed the soil off the roots, but I don't see obvious rhizomes sticking out from in there - just green stems attached to roots.
Is there a chance they aren't iris? Could they be an ornamental grass?
The green stems are growing in the shape of a circle (not a ball) with nothing in the middle. Is that normal?
I think there is a leftover stem of a dead bloom on a couple of these plants.
How do iris do in shade?
