Blooming Season: Late spring to early summer.

Soil Preferences: Moderately fertile, well-drained soil.

Landscaping Tips: Because freesia flowers grow on the sides of the stems, the flowers are visible from any angle! Plant freesia in clumps or borders.

Planting: Find a sunny spot - freesias prefer areas where the sun shines for 8 to 10 hours per day. Plant 1 1/2 to 3 inches deep and at least 3 inches apart.
