Delve into the realms of wild Tanzanian beauty with this gorgeous African plant, Trionia laxifolia (Klatt) Baker. Producing elegant upright stems of sunset-orange freesia-like blooms in autumn, you’ll be blown away by their mellow, dusky charm. Autumn flowers are well worth their space in the garden, shining during the ‘golden months’ and adding that pinch of extra magic. Tritonia laxifolia flowers late and lasts wonderfully - what a fabulous way to end the season!

Sword-like foliage similar to that of a gladiolus makes for an attractive grassy display during the build up to flowering. While this sun-loving flower is native to Africa and therefore adapted to warmer climates, it does very well given a spot in the garden where it can soak up the sun all day. It looks great in prairie-style planting scheme as well as a sunny mixed border.
