Your pollinators and hummingbirds will wonder what took you so long too! These flowers are adored for their ability to extend the late spring blooming season. They're also cherished as cut flowers that will last for up to three weeks as their flowers slowly open from the base of their racemes to their tips.

The Single Blue Freesia's buds have mastered the art and aesthetic appeal of repetition! Appearing in mid-spring and consistently opening from one day to the next. These balanced flowers offer an elegant addition to the garden, or to a floral arrangement! Because there are numerous buds per stalk that open consecutively from base to tip, they have a long-lasting presence everywhere.

Freesia are a spring staple. They are often considered among the best flowers for flower arrangements and spring containers. Single Blue Freesia, like other Freesia varieties, grows from delicate corms that survive warm winters in zone 9 and 10. Otherwise, we recommend using them in containers that can be brought indoors in other zones or used as annuals when planted in early spring. Let the Single Blue Freesia light up your spring with its inviting scent and refined beauty.
