There are a lot of Moraea, and I have kept clear of them for a long time. Many of them are rather tender, but sufficiently spectacular to make me
want to grow them, which would be frustrating!
A few of them make fairly good garden plants, and I am slowly overcoming my resistance and trying a few (I don't know why, there are still plenty of Gladiolus
to occupy my attention - just fickle I guess!).
This one grows tall stems supporting the large yellow flowers marked with brown. I am still waiting to see how it will deal with frost. It seems to like a lot of water through the summer,
it is still open to question if it will tolerate the moisture through winter.
