Can anyone give me some ideas about what this might be?

Northern VA, mountains, in a meadow-y patch that normally stays wet...not standing water but some water-loving sedges grow here. This is not a sedge. The stems are flattened and kind of white and fleshy (but not bulbous like onion) at the base. Almost like wild irises but I don't think it is an iris. Definitely clumping. Blueish new leaves grow in the Fall and flop over, blades not erect. It is probably something very common but I just don't know grasses very well. Any help would be appreciated! Thank-you!

It's difficult without flowers and without being able to see the small details, but maybe orchard grass, Dactylis glomerata. Some pictures from Google:
