I'm sure these are iris. They have rhizome bulbs that grow along the top of the soil. I told my dad before, the purple ones smell like grape pop!

This same picture posted July 18th was called a shore lilly by michaelc007. As already mentioned it is an Iris; Flag. The names are interchangable.
Knowing that, there are three choices of Flag this size to choose from. It does have a not so bright geenish yellow area, and also the leaves on the stems do not overtop the flowers. This indicates that it is probably Wild Blue Flag.
