Our next flower for our series of posts on Wedding Flowers and Symbolism is the Freesia. Native to South Africa, Freesias are lovely spring flowering bulbs, highly fragrant that make lovely bouquets or are great mixed with other flowers in bouquets. Freesias have delicate blooms and have a lovely subtle fragrance. They can be used effectively in bouquets and table decorations and are available in a variety of colors including lilac, pink, white, orange and red.
