It seems the only visible foliage is from the yellow iris. The more complete you are with information, the more accurate any guesses will be. Is this a hand me down iris, from the wild, have you seen the seed pods .... any info is always helpful.

Absolutely. More info, and more comprehensive photos (show all parts of the plant), are always helpful. From what can be seen, Iris versicolor?

It is Iris spuria or, possibly, one of the cultivars derived from it.
