Moraea tripetala - apparently it's quite variable and may be divided into new species or subspecies; this one appears to be one of the ones which will end up as a subspecies of M.tripetala

When Babiana odorata and B. pygmaea flower at the same time we end up with hybrids which have varying amounts of yellow in them and usually radial symmetry showing the influence of B. pygmaea,

More South African bulbous plants in flower at our place.

One pot of seedlings of Hesperantha latifolia seems to have an interloper!

Hesperantha latifolia and a strayHesperantha latifolia hybrid?

Is it another species or perhaps a hybrid between H. latifolia and something like H. humilis or H. pauciflora?

Lachenalia concordiana
