Possibly Siberian Iris, assuming they just bloomed.

Is the foliage short in the winter and grows longer till blooms?

Iris reticulata or sibirica, Cantab reticulata (zone 3-10) has blue flowers among other dual colors, the siberians are more common in blues, purples and whites also present in zones 4-9

I honestly don't know. This is on a customers property and I've never seen it in the winter. This is the first year that I noticed these plants blooming. Thanks for the help. Now I have something to go on, and I'll look online.
