Right now there are no roots at the proliferation.  The idea of bending it down, if I can do it without breaking the stalk, is probably a very good one.
I knew it happened in daylilies but could not remember the correct term for it.

Very nice seedlings, Jan.
I've only recently started "collecting" spuria iris, so only 3 have bloomed here so far.  From what I could see on your pictures re spuria mystery growth, it looks like a proliferation, as sometimes happens on daylilies.  If it has enough roots to support it, I'd cut it off and pot it up.  Otherwise, after the parent stalk blooms, I'd bend the stalk to the ground and pin it there and see if it takes.

Here is another bee pod spuria.  It looks more brown than the photo shows.  I will try to get a shot in the sun tomorrow.
