It's Dietes but not sure if it's D. iridioides or D. vegeta; know it's not D. bicolor because it's white, not yellow. If you want to try some, I'll send them along when I get around to digging them up.
They'd be fun to try; send a rhizome or two (not many) my way
(address coming offline). I'll have to dig and store over winter
as they would certainly not be hardy here. I've seen pictures of
D. bicolor which is white (at least the _pictures_ were labeled
D. bicolor). Seems white is their favorite color, with colored standards
and a blotch of something on the sepals.
