Need ID + a new question

Interesting -- the parent plant, which hasn't bloomed for two years is now just 
beginning a flower spike, while this (I assume seedling, as I never planted it) 
is just about finished blooming.  This may be due to my new watering system 
which is giving these plants plenty of water.

One thing that gets me about the nomenclature: if Dietes is separated from 
Moraea in the Iridoid branch of the family on the basis of being rhizomatous 
rather than cormose, why isn't that sufficient to separate Schizostylis from 
Hesperantha in the Crocoid branch?

Agreed, -it likes lots of water and normally flowers at the end of summer,
I have known it to flower for twelve months
