This genus was named after the German physician Friedrich Heinrich Theodor Freese (1795–1876).

Cultivation

Frost hardy. Plant 5cm deep in an open, sunny situation and in well drained soil. In cold areas, lift corms and store dry for winter.

Interest and use

Grown for their red flowers, followed by egg-shaped seed pods that split to reveal red seeds.
