I don't think it is a Walking Iris, Neomarica. Neomarica plants have glossy bright green foliage, rather than the blue-green foliage seen on your plant.

hey there
well i was just going by the label and the owner of the plant nursery told me that this is a new one and it looks just like my other walking iris as far as the plant. do you have any idea of what it may be? i am stumped.

thanks so much for all the help i would just like to know what it is.

If it is a Neomarica or Walking Iris, it should have several blooms on the flower spike, then fall over to the ground and grow a plantlet right where the flowers were.

It seemed to me the because the foliage doesn't match other Neomarica species, it is not a Neomarica.

hey there
okay i will watch it over the next couple of days to see if it does that. please keep checking this i will update with pictures to see if it does bend over. i need all the help i can have i like this plant but would like to know what it is.
