About This Plant

Sun/part shade; a small evergreen, with aloe-like leaves. Delicate, orange and yellow bloom stalks appear from spring through frost.

Easily cultivated, no-fuss bulbine is great for cursed, scorched corners of the yard where nothing else seems to grow — in its native range, it’s accustomed to hot and dry conditions. It’s often employed as a bedding plant where carefree color or upright texture is needed.

Maintenance

Occasional supplemental water in summer only. Needs no other care. Tips may be burned by frost.
