Freesias are native to South Africa and are named for Friedrich Heinrich Theodor Freese, a German student who studied African plants in the 19th century. They belong to the Iridaceae family.
Availability and Vase Life
Most freesias are available year-round, depending on their variety. Their colors include white, purple, yellow, red and orange, and their average vase life is 4-7 days.
Care and Handling
Upon receipt, cut the flowers' stems in a clean underwater cutter or sink. Freesias are both ethylene-sensitive and fluoride-sensitive. Also, avoid using fluoridated water throughout the care-and-handling process, and do not mix freesias with freshly cut narcissuses or daffodils, which emit a substance that can shorten freesias' vase life.
Freesias' unusual, appealing shapes make them suitable line flowers for any arrangement, and their wide range of color varieties increases their versatility. They also make fragrant additions to bouquets and body flowers.
