   This member of the Iridaceae family was given this name by William Edward Gumbleton in 1896. It is found in the Cape Province of South Africa, growing in grit and other well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The bulbs grow to one or two centimetres, the whole plant can reach 12 to 40 centimetres in height.

 This plant is my absolute favourite among scenting flowers! They occurs in the real early spring, and it might be called a winter grower..

Freesia is named after the German physician: F.H.T. Freese. Alba means white in Latin.
