Moraea Neglecta - Indigenous South African Bulb - 10 Seeds
Moraea is a genus of plants in the family Iridaceae. The genus name is a tribute to the English botanist Robert Moore. Moraeas have iris-like flowers and were at first regarded as members of the genus Iris, but most of them are smaller than most irises and commonly they are more precise in shape and with a stiffer perianth and more definite markings. Some have strong, pleasant scents, while others have none to speak of. Plants of the genus now called Dietes once were considered to be in the genus Moraea, but were separated on the grounds that they were rhizomatous. In contrast, all Moraea species have corms.
