Looking at the pics of Hesperantha baurii - sent as Olsynium junceum I compared my plants with these photos and realized that my Sisyrinchium roseum shown by me at July 10th in 'Flowers and Foliage now' and received from the SRGC seed exchange are in fact also Hesperantha baurii.
Sorry for my mistake - the pink flowers seemed to be plausible for the Sisyrinchium.

Oh yes, in this post, Gerd.......http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=7532.msg207540#msg207540

Amazing how we find things out in these round about ways, isn't it?
 
I didn't think the pollen on ours looked very promising and indeed, as the flowers pass there seems little sign of any seed pods fattening.  :'(    Perhaps there will a an increase in the corms instead.
