Fressia Flower Bulbs

A wide range of colors and an alluring floral fragrance make freesia hard to resist. With up to eight trumpet-shaped, upward-pointing blossoms on leafless stems, freesias make delightful flowers. Freesias need an abundance of moisture during the entire growing season, but you should allow the soil to dry out once the flowers fade.


In the Ground

Prepare the bed by digging and loosening the soil to a depth of at least 8 inches. Plant the freesia bulbs, or corms, at least 2 inches deep and 2 to 4 inches apart.

In Pots

Plant the bulbs about 2 inches apart in a pot filled with regular potting soil. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, and place the pot in a sunny, preferably south-facing window.
