These red fruited members of the iris family are not native to my knowledge. They are frequent in Huddart Park. They are much more prolific than the native iris. I will try to find the botanic name.

Coral Iris has been seen at JRBP in the past. Could this be it?

Let us try Iris foetidissima. I have seen it at Jasper Ridge. For me the key is the larger leaves and, in the late fall and winter, the prominent red berries. I last saw a plant at the cement crossing of the creek; left side in the willows as you approach the water.

Iris foetidissima is native to Northern Africa and Southeastern Europe. Imported and escaped. I have several in my garden that I try to control by destroying the numerous seeds produced each year.
