You are probably right Rick

the seed are from wild collected source
it was the only flowering one this year in the pot
and I didn't control the name on the label
so no idea what for sp. it is but it isn't violaceae
I will have a look later

Are these sparaxis small, like Sisyrincium?

The sisyrhiniumSisyrinchium  we grow here have small flowers, about 10-12cm.  Are those Sparaxis grandiflora that small?

The petals are so symmetrical on your Gladiolus quandrangulus, except for the stamens and pistil, it looks like a lily!

The Sparaxis flowers where about 3 cm diameter
so by long not so small as Sisyrinchium (I can't find sisyrhinium)
