The Babiana Stricta carries a number of titles for such a small flower. It’s been called the Baboon Flower and the Blue Freesia, yet its only link with a baboon would be sharing its native habitat in South Africa with baboons, and when it comes to the blue flower aspect, Babiana Stricta is available in several colours including violet blue, magenta, mauve and white now thanks to hybrids and cultivars.

Babiana Stricta will attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators to your summer patio or garden!
