A few weeks ago, someone mentioned a non-flowering iris. I took the  
time today to go measure the leaves on a clump of Iris I have that  
has also never flowered for me.  Would the person who wrote about it  
contact me so we can compare notes?

I have had this plant for more than 10 years; it came with a label  
indicating it was Iris tenax, but now that I know that species  
better, I know the leaves are too long, and the leaf color is too gray.

In this mystery iris clump, Individual leaves are at their largest 4  
mm wide and 60-62 cm long. The clump is 25 cm across, and the foliage  
color is light greenish gray. In my yard, zone 8, it grows in sandy  
silt, in a bed that gets no summer water and full sun.
