    They look like Iris's but until you have flowers I can't tell

    Looks lie Gladiolas to me. They bloom much later than the irisies.

  • The first pic actually looks like blackberry lilies which have small round black seeds and are related to the Iris. My blackberry lilies are blooming early this year and I have posted pics for you to compare.

    , flower of the blackberry lily, this is the fan and the lilies do develop rhizomes like Iris as the plant matures
    • @Douglas Hunt I have some still pushing out of the ground from sown seeds last fall or this spring (cannot remember which way). Most of my 4' stalks are blooming. This is about 2-3 weeks. early. usually they happen after most of my daylily are done,.

    They're Gladioli, they may not flower this year but give them a chance, I grow mine in a pot till they're big enough to go in the border x

    Iris and glads look a lot alike, for sure. Irises bloom earlier than gladiolas and Irises are not bulbs, glads are. Neither of them are seeds. Everyone here is correct in saying, "wait until it blooms" to tell...if not this year, then they will bloom next year. Let us know!

    whether these are iris or glads, I don't know. However, Iris, glads and daffodils, etc do make seeds which I've gathered and planted... so who knows.

    It looks like it might be a Florida gladiola. They have small hard spherical bulbs that might be confused with a seed. The bulb get larger with age. They get small scarlet blooms on an inflorescence that attract hummingbirds.

    I would agree with glads, but don't forget that daylily leaves grow in a fan shape and some of them are very tall. We have some that are 3 feet or more tall.

    It looks like a Gladiolus. If it had a tall, vertical stalk of flowers, one under the other, its a Gladiolus. Beautiful, and great for cutting, for indoor flower vases. Lucky you!
