Iris Rhizome Comparisons

This page is dedicated to showing the many different types and forms of iris rhizomes. With bulbous irises being an exception, all irises have some form of a rhizome. Some are quite obvious, as is the case with Bearded irises; others look like any other massed perennial roots, but a closer look shows the rhizome.
