GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Freesia” Is A Group Of About 15 Species Of Perennial, Bulbous Plants Grown For Their Showy, Fragrant Flowers. All Are Widespread In Southern Africa. Freesias Are Popular Commercial Cutflowers, Garden And Houseplant Favourites And Many Are Grown For Their Fragrant Oils That Are Extracted From The Flowers And Used For Scenting Perfumes, Lotions And Candles.

The Plants Have Green, Narrow Leaves That Are Linear Or Sword-Shaped And Clustered. Only A Few Leaves Arise From The Bulbous Corms (Bulbous, Compressed, Solid, Underground Stems Covered With A Fibrous Skin). The Flowers Appear Among The Foliage On Long Spikes. Each Spike May Be Branched Or Unbranched And Bears Flowers On One Side. The Flowers Have Petals/Tepals That Form Tubular Or Funnel-Shaped Blooms That Begin To Open From The Base Of The Spike Up. Flowers Are Usually White Or Yellow And Sometomes Pink Or Red. The Fruit Is A Round, Warty Capsule. There Are Many Cultivars And Varieties With A Wide Range Of Flower Colours.

Culture And Hardiness Is Species Dependant. They Prefer Sunny To Partly Sunny Locations And Look Best When Grown In Groups. Plant Them In The Spring And Autumn. Cut Or Remove The Flower Stalk And Leave The Remaining Foliage To Replenish The Corm For Next Season’s Blooms.

“Freesia” Is An Excellent Plant For Forcing Or Greenhouse Culture. They Are Beautiful In Beds, Containers And For Cutting. If Corms Are Planted At Intervals, Successions Of Blooms Will Grace The Garden For Cutting.

Freesia Are Notoriously Difficult To Become Established And May Take A Couple Of Years To Do So, So Please Be Patient.

Plant Bulbs 3-4” Deep In Clusters. They Can Also Be Planted In Pots.
