Default Help Pleae - flower identity

Hi all,

This is my first post on here and would appreciate any advice as to what
type of flower this is.
Does anyone know what type of flower this is:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...ycesFlower.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...6/S6300292.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...6/S6300291.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...6/S6300290.jpg

The flower is only about 2-1/2 inches long and creamy white.
It has 3 little stamens, each with black tips but one of them has three tiny
white 'orchid shaped petals' for the want of a better word, I guess to catch
the pollen. The flower has 6 petals in all, three tallish ones at the back
and three small ones in the front which have mauve tips. The back ones do
not and are 1cm at the widest part and the front ones are only 1/2cm at the
widest part.

Thanks for looking.

Do a Google image search on Arthropodium milleflorum (Fam. Liliaceae)
and see what you think. Check for the vanilla smell: I reckon that'd be
the clincher for you.

Hello Trish,

Thanks for your post unfortunately it is not it.

I will not give up - I have this 'need' to know.

Thanks for your post.

I have hundreds of Ixia in my garden and even thought the foliage looks the
same it isn't one.

I WILL find out what it is.

I am going to email the pics to Digger in Dromana.

Cheers,
Di

What a clever person - thankyou,
I think you are on the right track - Gladiolus tristis.

As there are none flowering at the moment, I can't compare but my image and
the image on google are extremely close.

Thank you once again.

Di
