Dear PBS,

This morning my "strange" Dierama opened.  Every year it blooms around now, completely off season from my ordinary Dierama, which bloom in late spring.  This one also is shorter, has not multiplied, and has interior markings. Unfortunately I have no record of it other than it either came originally from UCSB prior to 1998  or it is a self-sown seedling of those.

Comparing to the PBS wiki page at
it resembles D. robustum but that one blooms in summer.
