This stalk has been present for weeks and it just keeps getting longer and longer. What's going on here?

You got me! Looks like it's a mutant of some kind. Keep watching, let us know what's happening.

Could be fasciattion. The stalks on fall iris are often not as much of a show stalk as those in the spring.
