Freesia is a genus of herbaceous perennial flower plants in the family Iridaceae. It is native to Kenya and South Africa.Plant Care
Freesias should be grown in full sun and planted in moist but well drained soil. They need lots of warmth and humidity. Freesias are “zygomorphic” meaning they grow blossoms along one side of their stem, in a single plane. They are very fragrant and used for cut flowers. Freesia is suited for warmer zones. Divide after three years to prevent overcrowding.

You will receive a second email the day your order ships telling you how it has been sent. Your order is scheduled to arrive at your door, fresh and ready to plant, usually within 3-5 days of leaving our warehouse, depending on your shipping address. We pack our plants to withstand up to 10 days in transit, in the event transit is delayed. We cannot guarantee arrival on a specific day. Please make sure to open your package upon receipt and follow the instructions included.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
