The walking Iris is genus Neomarica and it does as
Annette says creating proliferations from the bloom.
Dietes is larger and does not do this. I would love to
see a picture of the yellow-brown Neomarica. Several
years ago there were some Dietes hybrids shown in
SIGNA. Some were quite striking and stirred my plant
lust. But at the time I had so many houseplants I
could not think of any more.
