I am opening a thread for this, since I seem to have a few of these this year. First... from a packet of seed labeled Moraea pritzeliana, which is not Gynandris pritzeliana, which it clearly is not. I can best key it out as a Babiana ssp. perhaps B. odorata according to the best of my resources, but I cannot smell it ( apparently it should have a violet scent?). Of course, I am growing it with Viola odorata, so maybe my nose is getting confused .
Any ideas on what this Babiana species could be? Maybe it isn't even a Babiana?
It is blooming on February 17 underglass, raised from seed from Rachael Saunders planted in 2008.
