    I look closer the pics and noticed the leaves. These plants are not Neomarica, since the leaves of Neomarica are flat, and these are ruffled. So the next best thing is Tigridia. I would say it is Tigridia violacea.

    Cheers,

    I had a post of a orchid that looked very close to it. it was deleted. probably because it came from another forum.
    Sorry I forgot what the name of the orchid was.

    These aren't separate leaves it is all one. And the ruffles are 3 orchid looking mouthes
    (Sorry I don't know the terms)
    Seems they bloom any ware from one day to three days and then disappear.
    at the base there are 3 or 4 blades that look like regular grass blades.

    Thanks for every ones time.

    I think we have a winner.
    There are defiantly a bunch of those in the same area it is probably in the same family but the buds and flowers are a little different.
    every thing else seems the same.
    UPDATE:
    Just found some more pictures defiantly a Tigridia
    Thank you
