Description

Freesia is a genus of about 15 species of perennial, bulbous plants grown for their showy, fragrant flowers but only a faint scent. The berry-like fruit vary in colour from white, orange, pink to red and are aromatic.

Freesia Blue Bayou has beautiful violet blue-purple petals and a striking yellow center. The blooms grow close to one another, making it look like one giant bloom, which is just one of the many reasons it is so beautiful.

Environment

Freesia prefer sunny to partly sunny locations and look best when grown in masses. These plants do not tolerate very cold or hot conditions.

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.
Most Freesia prefer slightly acid, organic-rich soil with ample drainage. Once the foliage emerges, water the growing freesia plants often to keep the soil moist. Freesias need an abundance of moisture during the entire growing season, but you should allow the soil to dry out once the flowers fade.

The corms should be lifted and stored in areas where with freezing winters. They may also be lifted and stored in the summer in areas where temperatures are hot and really moist.

If corms are planted at intervals, successions of blooms will grace the garden for cutting. Expect flowers to appear about 10 to 12 weeks after planting.

Landscape Use

Borne atop a grassy, sword-shaped foliage, this flowering beauty is perfect for beds and borders where it will provide striking colour & contrast.

Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
