Bulbine frutescens

Bulbine Plant Features

Bulbine has become a popular plant in frost-free regions because it is drought tolerant, grows well in poor soils, and blooms repeatedly with cheerful yellow and orange flowers. It makes a great groundcover since bulbine grows over time, forming an impressive clump that can reach 4 feet wide. This clumping habit makes bulbine a great garden plant that's not too vigorous or invasive.

The plant's grass-like foliage grows to about a foot tall and is topped by the flower stalks.

Bulbine Growing Instructions

Grow bulbine in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. It tolerates light shade, but may not bloom as well ---  or at all -- in heavier shade. 

Once established, bulbine typically doesn't require watering except during periods of extended drought. Take care not to overwater this succulent if you have it in landscape beds near thirstier plants or near lawn sprinklers. 

Note: Bulbine is not intended for human or animal consumption.
