of it!!! >>

THE GENUS IRIS, by William Rickatson Dykes, p. 240, identifies this as among 
the  'plants wrongly described as irises."  He says the correct binomial is 
Morea polystachya but cites no authority for the name. HORTUS THIRD, tells us 
that as of the  time of publication this plant, was Morea polystachya 
(Thunb.)Ker-Gawl. It is an irid and one of the so called "butterfly irises, 
most of which are tender. Native to South Africa. Perhaps someone with a copy 
of CAPE BULBS or Clive Innes' book at hand will check therein to see what 
more may be learned. 

Hope this helps.
