The first photo set is definitely not a Hymenocallis. There would be a
clear bulb with the roots only emerging at the base and the
arrangement of the foliage would be quite different as well and not
whorled. It looks like the early season shoots of a Sagittaria spp. to
me, but not sure which species. I would guess the second mystery is a
sedge, likely Carex sp. but I would need to see closer shots of the
exposed roots, rhizomes and foliage. The Iris look similar this time
of year-but that does look like Iris tridentata!

Pond muck! so lucky ;)
