Freesia /Anomatheca 'Shelly', pic is next to 'Joan Evans' for comparison.
Bred here 2003, second time of flowering and even bigger and better than last year.

Produced by selfing 'East of Eden'. 90% of the hybrids came out the
same colour as
'East of Eden', but this one called Freesia 'Shelley', after a friend, and
because she too is large, white, single and has a rosey blush; is
much larger than laxa 'Joan Evans', and has better coloured
markings. Flower dimensions are 3.5cm x 2.8cm, not bad for a laxa type.
