Is it too late to plant Freesia?

mangomoonApril 5, 2009

I am on the California Coast, mild climate, marine layer and wind. Is it too late to plant Freesia?

I also need to know what bulbs are good for Fall through Winter growing and the same for Spring and Summer?

Hi Mango,

You might try asking on the CA forum. It might help too, if you would put something in your garden zone box that will give the best hint of exactly where you are located so members can best answer your question. See I am zone 5/6 S IN

I would not 'think' it would be too late, but being here in zone 5/6 I just know that it would be much too early to plant them here.

My freesia are in full bloom right now. They don't do well in the summer. There are many bulbs you can plant now that will bloom summer and fall. The nurseries are full of bulbs ready to plant now. Al

hi i bought some yellow freesia in the fall and they were in bloom in february they are barley dying out right now (the flowers) but there are some flowers that have not bloomed yet but look like they will any day now, i think it isnt to late to plant them, one of my bulbs hasnt even sprouted a thing yet just small leaves that dont even seem to grow so i am assuming that that bulb will bloom extremely late maybe in june...:/

good luck!:]
