Freesias originate from the Mediterranean climate of western S. Africa.   Wet winters that don't go much below freezing then hot, dry summers.  Would be pretty difficult to simulate those conditions in Chicago.  Joe,  Oceanside, CA

The plan is to use these for cut flowers.  I am in the Chicago area and realize that they are not winter hardy and would need to be lifted for the winter.  Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.
