Location

Southeast Texas

General Information

I have seen this plant at my weekend place in the woods in Colorado County Texas for years. The area is Live Oak / Post Oak sandy land woods. The plant is mostly un-noticed when not blooming since it just looks like other long leaf / long stem grass it grows with. When it blooms, it puts up a tall stem with 1 or 2 flowers on the stem. The flower stem is usually about 12" tall and the flower is around 1.5" across.

Thanks for the information. I thought it may be an Iris from the research I did online but wanted to confirm. I find them growing after several days of rain in open grassland areas between the trees. They continue to bloom most of the summer as long as the soil stays moist.

It's an Iris, it kind of reminds me of a creeping iris.
