YEAR-ROUND

A native to South Africa, freesia is a perennial single or double blooming favorite.

Some of the various types of freesia have delightful fragrance while others are not so aromatic.

They range in colors from pale white, yellow and violet to more vibrant shades of fuchsia, red, orange and purple.

FARM FRESH: Our Freesia bulbs receive specific temperature treatments to produce optimal blooms – and ultimately – better lasting qualities. They are planted in rich warm soils where they mature into vigorous plants. At the precise time, the soil is cooled to encourage the development of buds. Freesia are harvested when a sliver of color is showing on the flower head, keeping the delicate petals safe during transport.

LENGTH: Long, arching stems exceed 24”. Standard bunch size: 10 stems. Also available as Consumer Bunches.

LASTING: 7 days+

CARE AND HANDLING: Upon arrival cut stems and place into a clean container with fresh, tepid water with fresh flower food solution. Remove any foliage below the water. Keep in cool location out of direct sunlight and drafts. Replenish water as needed. Pinch off fading blooms to prolong vase life.

In the language of flowers, freesia are said to symbolize innocence and friendship.
