Re: African iris

some African iris [Dietes iridiodes], which I "temporarily" potted up a few years ago, that I'd like to get back in the ground. Maybe I need to think iris on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Dietes you sent me a couple of years ago is starting to flower.
Had a flush of 9 flowers several weeks ago (on 4 spikes), followed by
another flush of 8 last week. It's very handsome.
   I'm not sure it's D. iridioides, or vegeta, or grandiflorum. I have
a good photo of D. g. I can believe, plus a maybe-believable pic of
D. iridioides but none of D. vegeta. I can't see the difference between
the first two; the flowers of D. v. are reputed to last only a day which
matches ours. How long do yours last ?
