What is this plant?

Hi there!

So I acquired this plant some time ago. I have done a lot of searching and asking and have yet to find out what it is. My first thought because of the foliage and rhizomes was that it was an iris but as you will see it does not flower like an iris. If you would like to see more pictures please let me know

Looks like an Iris to me, there are many varieties of Iris.
