Found this gal growing near a prehistoric stone hut in Provence, Fr in '16. Pulled several corms up by hand, dried over the winter, then planted in '17. Blooming beautifully now. She's a small plant, 8"tall, very vigorous grower. Any idea what I've got here? I'd be happy to send a corm to whoever can I'd it.

Maybe, because of the height, one of these?

a closer pic of the bloom would help.From what I can see of the flower, i. germanica would be a candidate, except they run taller Shrug!

Closeup of mystery June 4 post. If rare or unusual I'd be happy to send corms to who ever would like to have one.
