- Flower id?
Usually I like flower ID, and make my living buying and selling garden plants in the UK, but I don’t recognise that. The closest I would come is one of the miniture wild tulips (certainly not UK native – more like Himalayas). Hard to say without seeing the foliage, but they come in lots of colours and can have very thin strappy leaves… a bit like THIS but red!
I have found another image which almost matches yours – but the photographer just calls it red, yellow and black flower!

Showing off my Google prowess, specifically it’s a Sparaxis Tricolor. “Harlequin” just seems to be another name for Sparaxis.
The plant is native to southern Africa. It is present in California and Australia as an introduced species after having escaped from garden cultivation.Posted 5 years ago
Sparaxis tricolor has orange scarlet flowers with a yellow center edged with black. It grows on damp clay and stony soils in renosterveld in the northwest Cape and blooms in spring. It is one of the species used in hybridizing.
