Anomatheca Laxa Joan Evans (Freesia/lapeirousia)
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.
Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
