This is a gladiolus...........there is orange ones in the wild, but not sure about the white ones.

Those purple flower look a lot like some type of Iris??

We spent a weekend at Marakele at the end of September. It was extremely dry and I searched high and low for flowers to add to this thread!
On the mountain I found these little shrubs with the white flowers

Hi Naomi, don't know if you are still looking for answers to these flowers? This one I think is some kind of Anemone. I can only suggest genera for some of these - still very much learning plants I'm afraid!

Clematis brachiata AKA Traveller's Joy. This is actually a creeper in something else, so the leaves in the photo are not related to the flowers.
