12-16" tall x 12" wide. Double Pink Freesia lends
an exotic and colorful look to a garden bed. Freesia is low-maintenance, and
likes well-drained, sandy soil in a sunny location. When planted in fall, flowers will bloom in late spring. Plant bulbs 2" deep and
3" apart in groups of at least 6-8 for best results. Keep soil moist
through flowering, then reduce watering and allow foliage to yellow and wilt.
For cut flowers, harvest when a couple of buds have opened, and these
long-lasting flowers can last up to three weeks in a vase. Freesia grows best
with moderately warm days (70°F), and they may not flower in intense heat with
temperatures above 70°F. Plant them in containers so you can move them to the
perfect spot. If you live in zones 9-10, Freesia will overwinter and re-appear
the following spring. For colder zones (2-8), plant these bulbs in the spring
as annuals, then lift the bulbs in fall once flowering has finished and the
plant's foliage has withered; let them dry and store in a cool, dry location
(55°F) for replanting the next spring.
