A heritage white Freesia, originally from the Cape Floral Kingdom in South Africa, with narrow leaves and fabulously scented flowers in spring, from March to May. These are smaller plants than the modern Freesia hybrids, growing to a height of about 30cm. They are great for warm sunny gardens, pot plants and as a houseplant in winter/spring. These are good cut flowers.
Autumn planted Freesias can be planted outdoors in the warmest UK or Mediterranean gardens, in full sun and rich well-drained soil. Otherwise plant in pots and bring indoors over winter for flowering in early spring. In pots, plant 6 bulbs into a 15cm pot.
Pack of 6 bulbs (coms). Plant in September to November/December, earlier outdoors and up to December indoors. Bulbs can be planted in spring for flowering later in the year. These are good-sized nursery-raised bulbs which flower in the first season. Planting instructions are included.
Sold out autumn 2017.
