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' 0"–3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
