We've had discussions in the past about Tritonia dubia which a number of us 
grew thinking it was Ixia pumilio. I grew mine from seed that was 
identified as Ixia pumilio which is about the same size but has short 
spikes of brick red flowers.  Tritonia dubia blooms much earlier than 
most  of the other species I grow some of which have just started blooming 
recently and others have yet to bloom.

My Tritonia dubia was much happier this year with less rainfall than usual 
and bloomed a very long time.…
