This is a message from the PBS website for janemcgary.

I have been growing Freesia laxa ( called Lapeirousia laxa when I first started growingit) and Fressia laxa subsp azurea (called Lapeeirousia abysinnica I believe when I first started growing it) for over 20 years and they have naturally hybridized in my yard in New Orleans and have produced plants with flowers in numerous shades of pink and purple which are quite beautiful.

I see on your webpage for freesia that a hybrid called Freesia laxa \'Sara Nobles\' is already known, but mine come in not just that color but also many others. (Amazing how many shades of pink and purple there are).

I have photos of them but don\'t know how to attach them to this e mail.

I would love to see them brought into commerce but have no idea how to go about doing that (not for profit but just to make sure they aren\'t lost if I move etc).  I would appreciate hearing back from you at my e mail address so that then I can send you photos.
