Ken I am sure it is one of the moraea's of which there are many (Do a google 
for International Bulb Society and check out their gallery).
It looks most like M. polystachya, but that doesn't have spiral leaves. Are 
you sure that isn't just a strange abberation? Your photo seems to show a 
normal leaf on the other side of the plant.
Cheers, Jan
