|These fragrant flowers make a great addition to cut flower arrangements. Strap-shaped 2 inch to 4 inch leaves grow in basal fans. Beautiful, large tubular spring flowers which grow along the upper side of stiff racemes are prized for their rich fragrance. 'Carmelita' has pure yellow blooms. Flowers will dry up after bloom, self-sow, then start growing again in the fall if spent blooms are not removed. In mild areas, Freesia may be planted (tip up) in the fall, about 2 inches deep. They can be grown indoors, in containers in colder areas. Both require plenty of sun and moist, well- drained soil. For indoor plants, fertilize just after buds appear. Once flowering has completed, reduce watering, allowing plant to dry out. Once dry, store corms for replanting in containers,in late summer. Confused about when to plant? For summer flowers, plant in spring. For spring flowers, plant in fall (frost free areas).
