<< Hi, I just got some Irises from a friend who knew the technical name for 
 iris, but not the type.  She said it is:
 Family: Iridaceae, Scientific name: Dietes Vegeta. >>

     This is the plant commonly known as African Iris.  It will grow in full 
sun or part shade.  I have better luck with it in a place that is sheltered 
somewhat from our winter freezes.
     The blooms are white with purple and yellow markings on them, and can 
come during most of the year.
