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, most species being found in Cape Province. Species of the former genus Anomatheca are now included in Freesia. 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.

    Elaine, my first question is how certain are you that this is an Aussie native? It looks too much like a southern African Iridaceae (think Freesia, Gladiolus) for me to think it is a native.
    Cheers, Greg

  • Ah, perhaps that’s why I can’t find it. It was growing amongst other Aussie natives and to me it looked rather like a china orchid, except for the centre bit and it being white. Didn’t know if china orchids came in white. I’ll check out the South African wildflowers. Thanks heaps Greg.
