"Name of this plant?"

Started by Carol - 5352 Sunday, 26 August 2018

 Please can anyone tell me the name of this plant. I moved house and it has just come up in my front garden in South Australia, it appears to be an annual and is only about 6 inches tall. Thank you!

 Actually it is perennial because it has come up again this year, must be a spring bloomer. The leaves are spotted - some type of orchid?

 I found the name - Lachenalia, commonly known as "Soldier Boys". They are very pretty in the garden, alternated with grape hyacinth

 Can anyone help me to identify this plant. I was weeding the garden a few days ago and came across it. Not sure what it was I decided to leave it and see if it flowered. Since then I"ve had this itchy blotchy rash on my hands and was wondering if this plant could have caused it. Thanks Phil

 In this sad time it was such a pleasure to bring up your gardening blog instead of reading the news Thank you so much I shall endeavour to work in my garden with your advice at hand. I wish everyone all the best and hope this ends soon. Happy GardeningSuzanne.
