I found this in my garden today growing up through a rose bush which is leafing out at the moment. I barely recognized it as the rose foliage on the particular rose is bronze when it's young. Where this came from is a mystery to me since I never planted any freesia that are this color, nor have I ever seen one like this.
In the natural sunlight it looks brown...but under artificial (flouresent) light it looks more like a deep burnt orange.
Anyone ever seen freesia this color before?
I'm posting two pictures.
