: That's the way seed pods are produced.

: Freesias are a bulb (well, corm, really) and that is the way they are propagated. I'm not positive that you can grow them from seed, but more than likely you can.

Hi Misty,

Many plants that form bulbs, corms or tubers underground also form seed. Daffodils are an example of this. It will often take longer for the plant to bloom from the seed than from another underground reproductive method, but you might also get a different looking flower.
