Freesia Single Yellow is a tender cormous perennial, often grown as an annual, boasting scented, funnel-shaped, sunny yellow flowers that bloom in one-sided racemes atop leafless, arching, wiry stems. Borne atop a grassy, sword-shaped foliage, this flowering beauty is perfect for beds and borders where it will provide striking color and contrast. It also makes terrific cut flowers which may last up to 3 weeks in a vase when cut in bud. A charming little flower that will capture your heart!

  • Grows up to 18-24 in. tall (45-60 cm). Over time your Freesia will multiply.
  • Performs best in full sun or light shade, in moist and well-drained soils. The soil has to be kept moist during the growing season.
  • Requiring minimal maintenance, Freesia are virtually disease-free and pest-free. They are deer and rabbit-resistant.
  • In USDA Zones 9-10 where Freesias are winter hardy, they may be planted outdoors in fall. In cooler areas, Freesia may be planted outdoors from spring to early summer for flowering in summer and fall. They may also be planted indoors in the fall for late winter and early spring flowers.
  • Plant the corms 2 in. deep, pointy end upwards, and 3 in. apart. Plant in groups of a minimum of 6-8 plants for best visual impact.
  • You may plant them in succession in order to extend their bloom period. Plants normally produce flowers 10-12 weeks after planting. Pick them when the first couple of flowers in the spray are open.
  • After bloom, reduce watering and allow the foliage to yellow and wilt. If you live in a cool area (hardiness zones 3-8) and want to save your bulbs, you may lift and store your corms in a cool dry location (55°F or 12°C) until next spring.
  • Propagate by offsets in fall or by seed in spring
  • Native to South Africa.

Learn How To Plant, Care and Grow Gorgeous Freesias


An essential component of many bouquets thanks to their long vase life (over 3 weeks), Freesias are striking beauties that also deserve a spot outdoors. Visually stunning with their abundant clusters of brightly colored flowers on gently arching stalks, they are also intensely fragrant. Native to South Africa, these tender cormous perennials, often grown as annuals, require minimal maintenance, are virtually disease-free and pest-free, deer and rabbit resistant, and will multiply to form generous clumps over time – provided some basic rules are respected.
