USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

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.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

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.
