Christy, again, these iris have no rhizome. They come from a bulb
much the same as dutch iris do. What you see is individual plants that
have mulitplied and if I dug them up i think you would see they each come
from there own bulb or crown. I don't think they are as broad-leaved as
your iris either. These are very narrow at the bottom, get to be 1/2 inch
about midway and taper to a point at the top.

[iris-photos] re: dwarf iris-new pictures of full plant
I'd venture an educated guess that these are
dwarf Siberians since the new fans seem to radiate from the sides of a
Setosas (all kinds) and the versicolors
I've transplanted today ( :-)) have fans clustered together
without benefit of a rhizome. The roots come directly from the bottom of a
crown and come up rather hodge-podge.
I've attached images of setosa canadensis,
dwarf Siberian (this is LITTLE WHITE), and a small versicolor. All are
about the same size at the moment.

Ok here's the full story. I never dreamed these little
guys would stir up so
much conversation. The leaves are12-18 inches
with the flowers blooming at
about 12 inches. The blade is 1/2 inch
across at the fullest point.
