Freesia.. Explore #442


White freesias are considered the most fragrant, but the flower can be found in variations of yellow, orange, red, purple, mauve and pink, as well as striped varieties of each colour.


The bright flowers blossom along one side of the plant's stem, a pattern known as "zygomorpic." While the buds are produced facing downward, the stem bends as the flowers mature so that the blossoms end up facing upward. Each long stem produces up to 10 flowers with little foliage.
