Who here grows freesias? I love fragrant plants; these seem like they will be quite lovely scent-wise. My wife was just making fun of me because I didn't know anything about them, the first time she knows more about a plant than I do. Maybe it's a florist type plant? Anyways, I love fragrance in the garden and they seem quite pretty. Who here has grown them in zone 6, 7 or otherwise?
When do you plant them? Do you start them in pots? It looks like they take 4 months to bloom and then bloom non-stop...is that right? They also look like zone 8 plants, might they overwinter in cold climates with protection? TheyIf they take 4 months to start blooming, I almost have to start in pots, right? Are they easy to dig and store?
I only see pics of the flowers. Is the foliage attractive? Do I just stick them in random holes in the garden because the foliage is blah?
Please give experiences, recommendations, etc...
