I'd agree Ina, in that The flowers on my R rammiflora have always been the
purple in the PBS pictures, and not pink. Also your flower looks too big
for rammiflora and I don't see any branching, R rammiflora also has
narrower more pointed petals and striping on the backs of the petals -(a
bit like Crocus reticulatus).
I have to agree that it does look like a romulea though, and for Romulea I
just think crocus, with a stem between the corm and the flower.
Perhaps it is a Hesperantha or other Irid though?
