|Perhaps @eclayne will come by? I notice he posted both the photos in our database. It is a lovely flower, and one I hadn't seen. Thanks for asking about it, and to ATP!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

But only three listed as Peacock Moraea: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Peacock+Moraea&su...

|I must have missed your call @woofie, or perhaps it was late night and it failed to register. Unfortunately I know nothing about Moraea and these were Telos Rare Bulbs photos that I imported. @plantladylin 's 1st link shows all the colors you mentioned @kirtiragi and many look like the Peacock's Welcome to ATP and please let us know if Telos has what you are looking for. Your timing is good as this is when Moraea ship.

|This info from the Pacific Bulb Society may help answer your questions.. Moraea is a rather large group and has been consolidated a few times The first link has pictures of the Moraeas called Peacock flowers.
The Dietes bicolor, was often sold under the name Peacock Iris, but it is neither a Moraea nor an iris, but a genus of its' own with 6 species. This caused further confusion for a lot of gardeners.
I do hope this helps.
