I've looked at the Babiana monograph and these are my guesses. Hopefully 
someone else will also have some ideas. I think the first one is either 
Babiana ambigua or perhaps Babiana geniculata, although that species is 
rare. The photo doesn't show the tube, the bracts, or the flower parts, 
all important features to figure out the genus. I think the second one 
could be Babiana ecklonii.

> Hi, can anyone help me with identification of these plants, photographed in the Cederberg Mountains - South Africa in mid-August (Winter but heading into Spring). Picture 1 (Babiana?) and Picture 2 were 10-15cm high plants and Picture 3 (Gladiolus?) is 20-30cm.  Picture 2 has distinctly hairy leaves and flower bracts.Many thanks,Becky Getgood (UK)
