Name of this plant?

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
