Unnamed spotting

Description:

Flowers with long orange and purple petals. They have very long green steams and a part of them pokes out like the beak of a bird.

Habitat:

I found these in my backyard. They might not have originated in California, but they are now planted here.

Notes:

These plants don't seem to be the ones that bees would like to pollinate from.
