Dear group,

I need an help to ID these hybrids/species I found here and there in some gardens in south of Italy.

Hipp#2 is a strong plant, found originally in a clump of over 30 bulbs. Leaves have a typical bluish cast and flowers have a 'triangular' face, about 12cm across (5'')

Hipp#3 has tall stalks and I have the suspect it could be H.vittatum, but not sure.
I would like to see pics of this species, raised from documented wild collected material, for comparison.

Hipp#4 I have no clues. It has a well visible dark red 'eye' and often flowers again in September

Many thanks
Angelo Porcelli
