Macroflowers: Freesias






Freesia plants stem from bulbs, so they should be planted in at least groups of three in high-quality composted soil. Grow freesias directly in the ground or in containers.

Freesias grow in my garden and bloom in winter. The winter cold


I have joined this meme for a while now, and I am loving it. First I love flowers. Second, the badge for this meme is the North Borneo Orchid.

Join Macro Flowers Saturday, a photo meme for macro photos and close-ups of flowers, garden flowers, wildflowers, blossoms, flowers with insects and butterflies (no insects without flowers), flowers with raindrops and whatever beautiful plants, plant seeds or berries you have, in close-up.

First time visitors, please read the rules. They are simple but I do ask that you, please, use a MFS badge or link back to MFS in some way. Thank you.

Macro Flower Saturday and my spending too much time on the computer means a neglected garden. Despite these, the freesias still bloom.

I have heard of Freesias, but never seen any! These have unusual variegated white and yellow markings. Do they come in different colors, or just the white? I LOVE the way they are wanting to go beyond the fence!!

They are gorgeous Ann. It is so interesting for me to see them blooming in the garden. They don't live in our climate outdoors, so I can see them only as cut flowers.
Thanks for sharing your beauties on Macro Flowers Saturday!
