Homeria collina

Iridaceae
Bulbs and bulblike plants, Perennials

Native to South Africa, where it is often found growing on slopes from low to high altitudes. Recently reclassified as Moraea. First comes one floppy, grasslike leaf. It is followed by branching or unbranched, 1 1/2-ft. stems bearing 2 1/2- to 3-in.-wide flowers in soft yellow or muted orange. Soon after bloom, the foliage yellows and dies down. Where adapted, plant any time from fall through winter, setting corms 2 in. deep, 3 in. apart; in such regions, corms can be left in the ground and allowed to multiply freely.
