I found this on my walk last Sunday and thought it to be an orchid at first. Coming home and consulting … blog and FOI web page, I discovered it to be the Mountain Roscoe Lily. Here are some pictures;

Is it an Iris? Please advise.

It is Roscoea species
I found these plants seeding on my walk yesterday and I took some photos to aid identification. 4 images.
Flowers required for confirmation
I thought the earlier photos in the thread were flowers but I may be wrong.
Roscoea species flowers appear to be different as per link
Thank you very much … I did not even think of Roscoe alpina which I have photographed and posted from here before. As per this image, we could be seeing the seeds of R. alpina only. Please advise. I learnt something new today. Please thank … on my behalf.
Yes …, this Roscoea alpina Royle with dehiscing mature fruit.
