The Fragrant Double Freesia Mixof Freesia Bulbs, 'Iridaceae Mixed', produces a rainbow mixture of fragrant bell-shaped flowers in a wide range of colors: reds, yellows, oranges, whites and lavender. They are simply charming! The leaves are sword shaped and light green and may be up to 1.5 feet high. Flower stalks are slender and about the same height. As many as 8 funnel-shaped flowers form a loose cluster at the top of each stalk. Where the flowers begin, the stem makes a sharp bend so that the flowers face upward. This mix is hardy in zones 8-10.

Freesias can be propagated by offsets of bulbs and seeds and its quite easy to do it this way.
When planting your freesia flowers make sure to plant them in a spot that will get full sun.
The corms (which are the bulbs) need to be planted close together between 4 to 6 bulbs will work well.
You can either start them in a pot or straight into the ground in your garden will work just fine, I don’t know if I'm lucky but I rarely start any of my plants in pots first then transplant them into the garden, knock on wood.... I have a great success rate.
Your soil should be a well draining soil to start off with then
plant your freesia bulbs about 1 inch below the soil in early March.
Keep the plants well watered while the leaves and flowers are developing then when the plant is well established give the freesia a light watering once or twice a week.
When the plant has done its time and dies off you can either just leave the bulb in the ground but if you live where it gets below 32 degrees you might want to dig up the bulbs till time for planting again next spring.
