Garden Alphabet: Freesia

We have two types of Freesia that arrive in the garden each Spring. They don’t get quite enough sun and so they are quite “floppy”, but they return every year like clockwork

“Freesia is a genus of around 16 species of flowering plants in the family Iridaceae, native to the eastern side of southern Africa, from Kenya down to South Africa,[1] most species being found in Cape Province.[citation needed] Species of the former genus Anomatheca are now included in Freesia.[1] The plants commonly known as “freesias”, with fragrant funnel-shaped flowers, are cultivated hybrids of a number of Freesia species. Some other species are also grown as ornamental plants.” — Wikipedia.org
