Large clumps of the iris plants have what appear to be seed pods in place of where the flower was.

Yes, you can plant the seeds in the fall about 1/2 inch deep in amended soil. Wait till the pods start to split. They won't all germinate, but some will. And, since irises are hybrids, the new iris won't look exactly like the parent iris.
