A large genus, mainly from South Africa, with Iris-like flowers in a range of colours, very showy and in many cases quite easy to grow from their corms. The three large standards often have a substantial central blotch in a contrasting colour, which makes them exceptionally attractive.
|Moraea spathulata comes from the eastern parts of South Africa, but does well outside in the UK. It has a few large, bright yellow flowers on each stem.|
