>>>>Unknown -- This showed up in a potful of Geissorhiza seedlings, seed
from Silverhill. Any help identifying this would be welcome. Photographed by
Mark Mazer.…

Could this be Romulea clusiana.

Best Wishes,

> Dear All,

> The second picture is one of a Moraea growing in Jana Ulmer's garden that

> Gynandriris group since we don't have pictures of all of them. I looked
> through page by page of the Goldblatt Moraea book. Moraea debilis was
> possible but the drawing didn't show the spots. Jana has given us
> dimensions in her picture which is a good idea. She may have to come out
> lurkdom to give more information. Lauw? Anyone?
> Thanks in advance.
