12-16" tall x 12" wide. Single Yellow Freesia
sports cheerful yellow flowers that delight in garden and in vase. This
versatile flower is a must-have addition to the summer garden where its flowers
will bloom 10-12 weeks from planting. Plant in succession for a long season of
brilliant flowers. 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.
