Think it's probably Gladiolus byzantinus. There's a photo in the PDB (not the one that is on the first thumbnail - you have to actually open the whole entry.

Looks like a little wild glad that grows here. If so, it's a real keeper, in my opinion. Requires no care, will grow in my rocky alkaline soil, spreads just enough to let you share. And it blooms early, when you are so ready for flowers after the winter. I don't even have to stake them, as the blooms are small and don't weight the stalk down.

Oh, just goes to show (yet again LOL!) how misleading/confusing common names can be. I call Dierama pulcherrimum Venus or Angel's fishing rods Cala!!

Philomel, they call those that too!! Common names can be so confusing. I had a customer ask for a "Piney Rose" and I thought they wanted a rose. It was a peony that they wanted. We call armeria "thrift" but some call creeping phlox "thrift". Blooming moss could be portulaca or creeping phlox!! I never really know what they want.
