Bulbine (Bulbine frutescens and cvs.)
USDA Hardiness Zones: 9 to 11
Size: 1 to 2 feet tall and wide
Conditions: Full sun to partial shade; prefers well-drained soil
Bulbine sports aloelike evergreen leaves, and it flowers nearly year-round. It’s perfect for adding a burst of color to rock gardens, meadows, and even containers, thanks to its compact shape. This succulent tolerates low water but looks best with a weekly soaking. If you prefer orange blooms to the standard yellow, try ‘Hallmark’ bulbine (B. frutescens ‘Hallmark’, pictured).
