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.

Thanks! let me know if it would be useful to obtain additional photographs either now or later in the season.

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.
