Fairy Iris (<i>Dietes grandiflora</i>)

Seen in the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California. Native to South Africa it's probably a garden escapee. Many thanks to SP member Nartreb for identification. April 2008.

Think I've got it

It's either dietes grandiflora or the very similar dietes iridoides
