‘Native to South Africa, freesias are often said to represent the silhouettes of ballet dancers with their elegant poise. Nicola Slaney has captured these delicate blooms in a vibrant collection, Maya, named after the celebrated Russian ballet dancer, Maya Plisetskaya.
Striking funnel-blooms in soft cotton-pinks and pale, turquoise flutter upwards in a fouetté. Against an ivory ground, slender stalks stand straight with pinnate compound leaves. As if choreographed, an abundance of mustard-buds bend in a plié to finish this elegant design.’
