Freesias are easy to grow and will reward you every spring with bouquets of sweet smelling flowers. The corms multiply readily, with each plant often producing 4-5 new corms per year. These will grow to flowering size after a year. The flowers come in a multitude of colours, from whites and yellows to reds and purples, and make an exceppent long lasting cut flower.
