Moraea lurida is in flower again - the only difference between this one and the one that flowered last year is that it has tiny yellow tips to the "standards". It appears to be pollinated by flies

Moraea 'Karen Howard' from a few weeks ago - a hybrid between Moraea atropunctata and Moraea loubseri which we got from Garry Reid (Obscure Bulbs)

Fermi I don't know which of your flowers to admire. They are a joy to see them on the forum. Thank you.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

A mystery moraea which appeared in the old "South African Sand Bed".
Any suggestions to what it might be? Could it be Moraea pritzeliana?
cheers

Moraea setifolia seeds itself around a bit and the flowers are fleeting but en masse can be quite showy,

Moraea bipartita - previously I'd only grown this in pots but had some spare corms to plant in a new bed. They have done very well so far,
