Little African iris


Adding a pennyworth from the Southern Hemisphere, the little African  
iris sounds like Dietes iridioides. There is a photo in Clive Innes book, 
The World of Iridaceae.

The local populace tend to use the term Moraea for both cormous and 
rhizomatous plants but within the New Zealand Iris Society we distinguish 
the two genera by using Moraea for cormous plants and Dietes for those 
with rhizomes.

Both are popular and easy to grow in New Zealand gardens as are many 
other South African plants.
