Last yr. I purchased plants at Hm. Depot that had leaves similar to pampus grass and bloomed small pale yellow/with black ctrs.throughout the summer and fall. I am unable to find them now and need to add more to my garden. I thought they were in the iris family but have had no luck finding them.

I think the plant in question is Dietes, commonly called Fortnight Lily or African Iris. These should be readily available in garden centers in your area.
