(Aka: Freesia laxa, Lapeirousia laxa) Anomatheca laxa 'Joan Evans' is a delightful color variant of the typically scarlet-red South African false freesia. The tiny green iris-like foliage emerges in late winter, forming a small, but fast-offsetting clump, topped, starting for us in April with lovely small white flowers, each highlighted with a dramatic red blotch. Dry soils in either part sun or part shade are best, and is a great rock garden plant. When happy, Anomatheca 'Joan Evans' will seed around nearby. Be sure to mark the planting spot, since it goes summer dormant.
