So I just moved to southern Oregon and am renting a home from an elderly Floridian couple that only visits during the summer. Our home has a large backyard and 2 separate fenced gardens. I have no idea what is growing or has grown in the past but it looks like there's some sort of onions or shallots growing EVERYWHERE. I remember our landlord pointing out a large flowering bulb and telling us it was wild garlic but that's about it. Can anyone identify what some of the plants in these pictures are please?

Hi Gabriela,

I can help with two of the three.

This one is an Iris. If you can post a photo of it when it blooms (along with how tall the bloom stalk is), then you may be able to get a more precise ID.

These look like they are in the Narcissus family (Daffodils, Jonquils, etc.). Once again, if you can post a photo of the flowers, others will be able to help with the ID.

The first picture looks like something in the Allium family (garlic, onions).. There are a lot of ornamental alliums, so seeing the flowers should narrow it down for you. The wild, and weedy one that I have here has a triangular stem w/ white flowers.. Mine are not even budded yet a few hundred miles south of you, so hopefully you have a more ornamental one that is less weedy.
Joshua is correct.. 2nd picture is a bearded Iris, and last one is most likely some type of narcissus...
