Bulbine bulbosa – Bulbine Lily

A great native alternative to daffodils, with the added bonus of fragrance, and a long flowering period, from spring to early autumn. It naturally grows from Queensland through to Tasmania, on a range of soil types, and it withstands frosts. It likes to be kept moist, as it will die off in dry periods, but the corms will resprout with irrigation. A great plant for rockeries, flower gardens and containers. Looks lovely in large clumps. Can be propagated from seed or by division. It grows from a corm, which is edible, choose the largest fat ones and roast for the best taste. The above ground parts are toxic in large quantities.
