Someone sent me these and did not label them...all they were was a stem and stuck in a pot and it finally bloomed...

I think it's the Neomarica name rather than Dietes because of the flower formation. Dunno what everyone else thinks LOL

It is definitely Neomarica, not Dietes grandiflora. The two are not synonymous. As someone pointed out in the other thread, Neomarica is South American, Dietes South African.
Neomarica, the walking Iris, bends the flower stalks (which, incidentally, look similar to the leaves) back to soil level, and roots, forming new plants (hence the name 'walking'). Dietes does not do that.
For what it's worth.
