Orange Bulbine, specifically the 'Hallmark' cultivar of Bulbine frutescens, is a succulent perennial known for its drought tolerance, ease of care, and continuous blooming habit. Native to South Africa, this plant has gained popularity in gardens for its attractive, grass-like foliage and stalks of star-shaped, orange flowers that bloom prolifically from spring through fall.

Growing to about 1 to 2 feet tall and wide, Orange Bulbine forms clumps of narrow, fleshy green leaves that resemble those of an aloe plant. The leaves are not only ornamental but also have medicinal properties similar to those of aloe vera, useful for treating cuts and burns. The bright orange flowers, which rise above the foliage on slender stalks, are particularly attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, adding to the ecological value of the garden.

This plant thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. It is remarkably drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, and areas with water restrictions. Despite its preference for dry conditions, Bulbine 'Hallmark' can also adapt to more humid climates if provided with adequate drainage.

In landscaping, Orange Bulbine is often used as a groundcover, in borders, or in container plantings where its vibrant flowers and succulent foliage can be appreciated up close. It is particularly effective in mass plantings, where its bright blooms can create a sea of color.

Overall, Orange Bulbine 'Hallmark' is a versatile and attractive plant, ideal for gardeners seeking low-maintenance, drought-tolerant options that provide long-lasting color and texture in the landscape. Its hardiness, continuous bloom cycle, and ability to attract pollinators make it a valuable addition to a variety of garden styles.
