Dear Annemarie,
 Here below some suggestions what species these could be. At the moment 
these forms have just finished flowering here. I hope that this is of
some help.
Kind regards   Lauw

 Watsonia mystery bulbs.  I've had these bulbs for a long time some
several years never knowing their names, because it didn't matter at the
time, they were just special to me.  My mother's friends had given them
to me when I bought my 1st home (I'm into my 2nd now) and they said they
have had them in their gardens for over 50 years. But since I've joined
this group I'm on a quest to ID my garden. Photo 1 and 4 are tall, over
3.5 foot tall and photo 2 and 3 are dwarf under 3 ft tall.  The org
dwarf seems to multiply better than the light pink dwarf. Both of the
dwarfs I've had for 20 years.  The others maybe only 10 years. I live in
Souther California, in the San Gabriel Valley.  Due to the weather here
I only have to remove bulbs or any plant for dividing.  So some of these
clump are getting big. If anyone has any idea on their names I would
love to now and give them the recognition they deserve. Ann Marie Rametta.
