Baboon Flower Mixture Description

Baboon Flower Mixture
Resembles a small gladiolus with freesia-like blooms. Sweetly fragrant and vibrantly hued, this mix of blue, purple and pink flowers is well suited for almost any garden but perfect for smaller green spaces or containers. Each flowering stem yields six or more 2" blooms. This African native is so named because baboons are fond of digging up and eating the bulbs, although deer tend not to eat the plant. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in 2002. Babiana stricta
