The delicious fragrances and lovely blossoms of this mixed fragrant freesia selection will quickly illustrate why these elegant, funnel-shaped flowers have legions of fans among horticulturists, breeders, and everyday gardeners. The colors range from bold flame-hued varieties to subtle, gentle pastel pinks and off-whites. The fragrances vary accordingly. Some gardeners claim that the quieter colors emit stronger fragrances- we'll let you decide for yourself. The tall stems and clusters of double blossoms make them perfect as cut flowers, and the long-lasting scents will softly perfume an entire room. The bulbs should be planted after the last frost and will bloom early in the summer, but unplanted bulbs do not bloom as is the case with other bulbs, so they can be planted late in the season. These freesia plants are also remarkably pest and disease resistant. This mixed freesia collection will also require good drainage and is partial to direct sunlight. The fragrant freesia collection can be grown in beds, borders or containers outdoors, but also grows quite well indoors and can be forced to bloom out of season to give you a sneak preview of the dramatic full performance in late spring or early summer. Fragrant, lovely mixed freesia flowers are a delightful way to brighten the early summer garden.
