In Norse mythology, Freya is a goddess of love and fertility, and the most beautiful and propitious of the goddesses. She is the patron goddess of crops and birth, the symbol of sensuality and was relied upon in matters of love. She adores music, and spring flowers, and is particularly fond of the faeries.
Freya stands at a maximum (in full bloom) of 15” tall and spreads to make a lovely and floriferous 12” clump within the first two growing seasons. The first year in the ground in my garden, Freya had 12-15 flowering stems. It forms a dense looking plant with many attractive blooms. Therefore, I feel confident this new selection will make a lovely cash-and-carry, or gift plant for the floriculture market. If planted in a perennial border or container, it will provide you months of violet-blue, star shaped bell flowers – perfect for attracting hummingbirds and other passers-by to your garden.
