Plant description:

A bulb which produces flowers with a beautiful scent, in a range of blue, purple, pink, red, orange, yellow and white (the most fragrant of all). These spring flowering cormous plants make excellent cut flowers. Plant corms in autumn, cover with ± 50mm of soil and water regularly to keep the soil moist at root level. Leave corms in the soil for the next season or lift during early summer and store in a dry place at room temperature.

A stunner of a plant Freesias have been grown and gardened with for centuries. Attractive double and single tubular flowers, produce sweet scents and are a good addition to any floral arrangement. Cut flowers last well in water and the flowering bulbs look stunning in the garden.
