Moraea macrocarpa from seed from Gordon Summerfield in South Africa, sown in 2010,
2 flowering sized corms and they were not synchronized! This is the second to flower so I hope it is self-fertile. And yes, Alisdair, it is scented - a spicy fragrance, a little like cinnamon!
cheers

I appreciate that, Fermi, thanks! At least you didn't have to get down on your hands and knees, as they're still in a pot....

Darren on the SRGC Forum has suggested that the above is Moraea cedarmontana and I'm pretty sure that's what it is
