It's a new-to-me garden so I don't know many of the plants. The person I inherited it from had quite different taste to me but it's good fun learning to love plants I wouldn't typically choose.

I would also suggest crocosmia, or other member of iridaceae with corms

Crocosmia would be my thought.

It looks like Crocosmias (Crocosmia) to me also but you will know for certain when it blooms.



The Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata) has broader leaves:
