Bulbine frutescens


This is a great green roof plant for warmer climates or sub-tropical green roofs. Also, can be planted in containers and used as an accent around rooftop patios, during warm weather (store indoors during colder months). Bright green aloe-like leaves with showy yellow flowers on tall stalks appear spring through summer. This plant is evergreen in its hardiness zone.

Small quantities are usually available or contact us about growing a larger order.
