Spuria Iris. based on my

Spuria Iris. based on my very brief look at the mystery bloom, i'm leaning towards identifying it as something from the spuria group. bloom / leaf description is consistent with what i see growing; i haven't gone so far as to dig it up and see what's underground. the spuria iris society has info and pics.

whatever they are, i have two of them, but only one currently has flower buds. spurias do grow in texas, and the description of growing conditions - sunny, well-draining, hot, summer drought-tolerant - matches what my plants have.
