Thanks bonitin and Tara.
I looked in the db and noted I'd previously posted a pic there (from the same place in Houston, my daughter's, a few years ago). Must be my faculty for remembering isn't as sharp as once upon a time. Thanks again.

Do you think this one is of the same designation?

I've not seen that particular one before, but it does look very much like it could be. Nice!

@jmorth J, I believe this is Dietes iridioides
Cape Iris (Dietes iridioides)
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Yep, I think that vendor just has it listed as Lemon drop, you know, common name kind of thing.
