I just had a thought and looked it up. They could Gladioli nanus, or dwarf , miniature , baby gladioli. Not as formed as the modern type ????

Thanks Christine, hows Tasmania. They are certainly something you don,t see often. It could be listed under heritage plants.

Hi Keryn, I think I know what you are talking about. 

I have bought a couple of these 'plants' in Op-Shops in Tasmania, over the last year or so. I have 2 varieties, both pink, one a softer pink than the other, neither as bright as yours. They are freesia like, but do not flower in the predictable way freesias do. They appear to be tough, and able to cope with intermittent rain. I imagine they have come from gardens that were established long ago. the flowers open up - one after another - along the stem in a gladioli-like manner.

Its a lot like a freesia, but stands more upright.

Bulbous plant grows in my winter and flowers in spring, dies off when it gets hot. Most attractive flowers. Don,t tell anyone but I pinched it years ago from an open garden homestead.

Thanks again, " yes" I think it is Muehlebeckia complexa, native to New Zealand . I keep mine very trimmed, but I have seen them 6ft high and 6ft wide. They are not prickly even though they look it.

Thanks for that Scott, I will have a look. Ranuculus firaria, just had a garden club visit and the were all asking me what it was, as its flowering very well at moment. Next time I will have a name.

Here is another picture link for Ranunculus ficaria.

Keryn, your Winter Perennial looks like Ranuculus ficaria. There is a lot of leaf variation and this link shows one similar to yours.

Keryn, Looks like your Mattress Plant is Muehlebeckia complexa.
