Dennis, Irises at this time of year would be nearly invisible since they
would be showing green seedpods or maybe brown ones only not the so
visible flowers so you'd have to know where the plants should be before
you could see them. The other plants would have stalks and leaves either
taller or bigger than the irises which would make the irises more
invisible. I find it helps if you know where the irises are situated
when you are looking for seedpods.
