Re: African Iris bloom


Upon first seeing the flower, it looks EXACTLY like the Texas endemic plant  
Herbertia.

Although this picture shows the flower as pink, when it is actually  blue.  
 
We grow a lot of Moraea plants here in the landscape.  Dietes bicolor  and 
Dietes vegeta are common landscape plants.  Too bad they haven't added  this 
one.  More and more species are being introduced, an orange blooming  one, and a 
variegated foliage plant are also available.  
 
I have a very good friend who is South African, her mom was a botanist in  S. 
Africa.  Will ask her what it means.  She just got back from  Austria last 
night, so will wait a bit before calling her.
