Hi folks,
Francesca said:
>>One is named Dietes bicolor and the other is Dieties iridoides or something like that. I do not remember which is the yellowish one and which is the white one.<<
Dietes bicolor is the yellow one with the black dot on it.  Dietes Irioidies (plus Dietes Grandiflora) are the while ones with the lavender petals.  Grandiflora has a bigger flower than Irioidies and also grows taller.
Here in Sydney Dietes varieties are used in parking lot plantings, along highways and other areas where very hardy plants are required.  I've been keeping a log on their bloom sequences over the last few months it it would appear that they bloom in sequence with a full moon.  I'd be interested to hear if other people have noticed (or may now observe) the same event in other  parts of the planet.
Cheers for now,
Heather Pryor
