Plant Identification: Freesia Plant

I got this beautiful plant as as gift and then lost the card saying what it was. Can you please identify it for me? Thanks so much! Randy

Hi Randy,

Yellow Freesia plant
Freesia Plant

Your gift is called a Freesia plant. This is a lovely fragrant plant that you can eventually plant outdoors.

After the plant stops flowering, keep watering the plant even thought there are only leaves. The leaves provide nourishment for the bulbs so there will be beautiful flowers next year. In the fall, when the leaves yellow, remove all remaining leaves. Allow the bulbs to rest for a few months before planting them outside.
