Notes:

It didn’t bloom anything last year, so I don’t have many details other than the pic. Thanks for helping/teaching me! :)

    This is a bearded iris (iris germanica). It prefers full sun, so it may not have bloomed because it appears to be in a shady spot. They also need good drainage and don’t like to be wet (causes the rhizomes to rot, killing the plant). So you don’t want so much mulch at the base of the plant. You should be able to see the rhizomes sitting slightly above the soil.

    Looks like bearded iris. It might have too much shade or be planted to deep to bloom.

    This looks like a gladiolus plant. You may already know that but I wasn’t sure what information you needed about the picture you posted. Why didn’t it bloom? I haven’t the foggiest. I suspect the problem lies at the root of the plant. Specifically the croms.
    Check out the following links for information that might help you and your gladiolus be glad once again!

    Ah, man. Bet that iris would be glad if it wasn’t in the shade.

    Thanks! I moved some of the mulch and I’m guessing we need to move them. Several of them get about 4-6 hours a day, is that enough? When is a good time to move Iris and Daylillies?

    Looks like an Iris, exactly what I planted in CA.

    The daylilies can be moved in early to mid October. It is possible to move the iris now, but it really may be too hot. You could wait until September since you are in N. Georgia.
