Rankkopieva


Bulbine frutescens

These grassy members of the aloe family are usually orange-flowered, but this crop is yellow. Just so you know. It’s rhizomatous, but not invasive. Southern African of course. Widespread through some of the hilly desert regions.

It’s English common name is “Stalked Bulbine” so you can see why I like the South African name better, in the title, not that I can pronounce it. Let’s try Rank-O-Pee-Ay-Va.
