Well, reading a little I can tell it is not an easy task to tell the name!
May be a more trained eye help be needed.
First they are all called Ipheion, Nothoscordum or Tristagma.
Second: It can be Ipheion Sellovianum(but in the PBS it says it should have 6 petals, despite there is a pic with 8).
Or Ipheion Hirtellum(but there in the PBS says it blooms April to June in the wild, and it was blooming in August).
Any help will be welcome!

The blue one IS 'Rolf Fiedler'. We have tried to keep the location secret over the years as it is so rare and local in the wild.

The yellow one is Nothoscordum dialystemon.
