5. Freesias

The favorite of all florists, Freesia is a plant whose aroma can overshadow even the beauty of flowers. This representative of the Irisov family has firmly secured her place in the list of the most spectacular garden and greenhouse plants. But today freesias are grown in room culture as well. And although this task is not so simple, the fragrant beauty compensates for any difficult care with its beauty.


Freesia came to us from South Africa and it is not for nothing that it is considered a true aristocrat. This is a charming corm plant, in indoor culture it is represented by hybrids.

Thin, with a central vein, freesia leaves up to 20 cm long are just a nondescript background for luxurious flowering. On bare, highly branched shoots graceful one-sided inflorescences bloom, consisting of elegant flowers up to 5 cm long.

A rich palette of freesia colors from white to all possible variations of pink, orange, yellow, cream, purple, red and even blue, asymmetric petals, decorated with spots and strokes of the throat - all this makes freesias unique. In indoor conditions, the plant is more compact than the usual "meter" grown for cutting.

The main advantage of growing freesia in rooms is the chance to achieve winter bloom. Corms are planted in the ground at the end of summer or at the very beginning of autumn for January flowering, shifting planting dates if desired to achieve flowering in other months.

Growing freesia is possible only for stubborn flower growers. After all, this beauty needs bright lighting and a long day, from 12 hours, protection from direct sunlight, drafts, temperature changes. During the active growth phase, freesia is kept in temperatures from 18 to 22 degrees Celsius. In order for freesia to bloom, after planting, it must be kept cool and in bright light without watering until the leaves appear, and then begin normal care.

Planting freesia is carried out in the standard way, placing the bulbs in groups of 5-6 pieces and deepening them 5-6 cm into the soil. The substrate should be loose, nutritious and slightly acidic.


Caring for room freesia is not easy. The plant must be protected from any fluctuations in growing conditions, ensure the timely installation of supports for weak shoots, high air humidity and stable light soil moisture. Extreme events, missed watering or too much moisture in the substrate are unacceptable.

Top dressing is applied every 2 weeks. Withering flowers must be removed in a timely manner. After flowering, freesia continues to be watered for another 4-6 weeks to stimulate the formation of children, and then the freesia bulbs are kept outside the soil after cleaning and drying in warm and high humidity up to a month of the desired planting, when the bulbs are transferred to dryness and coolness.
