These are very old pictures taken in Jan, 2009.
Had found these growing by the roadside.
Missed posting earlier.
Had done a lot of searching earlier.
Looks close to Habranthus Species.
Habranthus robustus?
Very few images are available on searching.
Perhaps a new addition for Eflora?

Habranthus brachyandrus can also be a possible id.

Maybe Habranthus × floryi as per comparative images at Pacific Bulb society.

Thanks Garg Ji.
But these were growing wild by the roadside, not cultivated.

None of the species mentioned by you is likely to be found wild as per POWO 1 and POWO 2

Garg Ji,
Then it must have escaped from a garden close by.
Let us go with your suggested id.
