Hi Mary Sue:
            The Mediterranean Romuleas are far from being understood, the 
North African species given a roster of names. There is a reasonably good 
key to the more common ones in Brian Mathew & Kit Grey-Wilson's "Bulbs". If 
Innes book is "The World of Iridaceae" you will end in a madhouse using it 
as a reference. It must be among the worst bulb books ever published. It is 
full of references like "Do not water when dormant", "grow like Tigridia" 
and bulbs described as corms, etc. Most Mediterranean Romuleas look like 
"sitting on the ground" from their short "stems", much like in Romulea
