Description

This tiny bulbous plant, now sometimes called Freesia and once known as Laperousia, has pure white petals with an intriguing red eye, and is thus totally distinct from either the pure white or the pure red flowered form. It bulks up quite readily whether in a scree or a pot.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
