Flower Spotlight: Freesia

With its sweet fragrance and colorful look, this flower is perfect for weddings, showing friendship, and making any arrangement gorgeous. Learn more about the history and meaning behind the freesia flower.

Named after two botanist friends, Christian P. Ecklon and Friedrich H. T. Freese, this beautiful flower was discovered in South Africa. There are about 14 different species of freesia across the globe. This gorgeous flower, when growing in its original environment, is a spring flower, but it’s always seasonal when florists use them. The first freesias used in arrangements were white and yellow, but thanks to cultivation there are now freesias of all colors!

This flower has grown in popularity, especially around wedding season. In the 1950s, more and more brides wanted this delicate flower in their wedding bouquets. Ever since then, it has been a part of weddings to mark purity and trust that is formed by the union of marriage.

There are several meanings for the freesia flower:

  • Innocence
  • Purity
