Freesia is a popular summer flower, in part due to their pleasant scent. These red with yellow throat flowers do well in containers and make lovely cut flowers, especially for creating wedding boutonnieres, corsages and arrangements. Used for 7th Wedding Anniversaries. Also symbolizes innocence and thoughtfulness.
Full sun, rich soil and good drainage are essential to get these to bloom. Must be planted/started when temperatures are at 45-50° at night (for at least 4-6 weeks) with full sun at day. It will take approximately 6-8 weeks before growth appears.
