("Blazing star / Flame freesia / Saffron tritonia")
Tritonias produce nice loose spikes of up to 10 flowers, each 1-2" / 3-5 cm in diameter on slender, graceful branched stems. The rounded upfacing flowers which narrow to a short tube at the base resemble those of freesias. They are long-lasting cutflowers and their vivid soft colors will brighten up any room. Their foliage is narrow and grassy.
