Subject: [iris-photos] Unusual rhizome

A bit of mild spring weather is allowing me to do some transplanting so I
thought I'd post an image of one of 2 unusual seedlings...

I'm hoping that anyone familiar with a wide variety of SDBs and MDBs will be
able to offer some feedback about whether they've seen this style of
increase before.

Both seedlings are growing in a level area, BTW, not on a slope as the
rhizome would suggest. Of the 2, the form of this one is a bit more
pronounced. New increases are connected to the older rhizome by a "neck"
before widening into a 1/2" to 5/8" wide rhizome. Clumps are tightly packed
and increase is up as well as out.

I'd appreciate any insights.
