I agree with Bill that the unknown iris is I. fulva. Fulva is a species of Louisiana iris. LAs prefer wet, acid beds rich in organic matter. They can take full sun but can also take some shade. Under a  tree is not the best location for an LA.

Can anyone help me identify the species of this iris.

I'm pretty sure this is iris fulva, an iris native to the USA. Also, you will find it to be a very adaptable plant. Will grow in shade, sun, and most soil types. Likes moist soil but will survive dry periods.
