red flowers opening gradually along a droopy stem, the florets lasting only about a day; leaves like iris or gladiolus, growing from corms. Perennial.
Native to South Africa, a cultivar here but it will naturalize anywhere you accidentally throw a corm.
I like this red form better than the orange one, especially since it doesn't tend to clump & multiply quite as much.
