Dalfyre - very nice. I think that pinkish flower may be a tritonia. If it doesn't have a fragrance, it is not a freesia. Tritonias don't smell, and the leaves are quite short. Do you have a garden photo of it?

Bigred - using leaves is a great idea for this time of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere. That is nice dark purple on your loralpetalum and nicely contrasts the canna leaves. Does the flower of the lorpetalum make good cut flowers?

The variegated ginger - Alpinia zerumbet - is a great candidate for that use.
