Bulbinella

Bulbinella nutans full sun  partial shade

Hailing from South Africa’s Cape Province, this Asphodeline relative grows during the winter and is summer dormant. A bright green lustrous clump of channeled and grassy deciduous foliage celebrates long blooming, perfect-for-cutting, sunny yellow flowers. Described by numerous starlike florets, opening from the bottom up on erect cone-shaped racemes, the unfurled blossoms skirt beneath tight green buds and look a bit like ballerinas in frilly tutus alighting slender curving stems.

Most dramatic when planted en masse with Geranium harveyi and Euphorbia myrsinites, Bulbinella nutans is superb for naturalizing in a sunny, well drained, low-maintenance border where it can be kept dry during the summer, at which time its old leaves can be pulled off.

Blooms February–March.

Size: 2'–3' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
