An Interesting Moraea

roncorylus

When I saw a small yellow Moraea on the plot nearby and wrote about it in my blog ‘An Empty Plot’ I had trouble identifying it and eventually settled on M neglecta, knowing that the latter is normally around 25 cm tall, whereas the one I saw is only 10 cm tall.  I therefore misnamed it and it was only when Christine saw the image and recognised the flower that I became aware of M. papilionacea.  This then, is what it is and it around 10 years since one was last seen, so found the plant again this morning and show it in all its glory!
