The genus Moraea is named for Robert More (1703-1780). More was an academic, botanist and politician.
A very forgiving corm that can tolerate virtually any soil conditions from drought to moist (not wet) soil. Best in full sun.
Requires little maintenance to maintain a neat appearance. The spiky foliage adds great texture and interest to formal settings or plants can be naturalised. Blooms last only a day or two but are produced over a long season through the spring and summer.Height 15 to 20cm.
