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.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”
