I got this Zephyranthes as a lemon variety but didn't think it much different to the type species Z.candida! However in the right light they do have a pale, pale, pale lemon look to them as seen here a fortnight ago

This came to us as seed of "Moraea alpina" but looks like it's Herbertia lahue

Herbertia lahue Herbertia lahue

It's well known for impersonating Alophia drummondii and Herbertia pulchella but I think Moraea is a first!
