Yellow Bulbine, scientifically known as Bulbine frutescens, is a succulent perennial that originates from South Africa. It's prized for its drought tolerance, easy care, and the bright, cheerful yellow flowers that adorn the plant for much of the year. This hardy groundcover is an excellent choice for gardeners looking to add long-lasting color and texture to their landscapes.

Growing to about 12 to 18 inches tall with a spread of 1 to 2 feet, Yellow Bulbine forms clumps of aloe-like, fleshy green leaves. These leaves are not only attractive but also have medicinal properties, useful in treating cuts, burns, and skin irritations. From spring through fall, the plant produces slender stalks topped with star-shaped yellow flowers that are highly attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Adapted to full sun to partial shade, Bulbine frutescens thrives in well-draining soil and is notably drought-tolerant once established, making it an ideal selection for xeriscaping and water-wise gardens. While it prefers dry conditions, it can also perform well in more humid climates if not overwatered.

In landscaping, Yellow Bulbine is commonly used as a groundcover, in rock gardens, or along borders where its vibrant flowers can provide contrast against the greenery. It is also suitable for container gardening, allowing gardeners in cooler climates to enjoy this plant by bringing it indoors during harsh winters.

Overall, Yellow Bulbine is a versatile and attractive addition to any garden, offering a low-maintenance solution for adding color and interest. Its resilient nature, combined with its appealing foliage and flowers, makes it a favored choice for gardeners seeking to create a vibrant and sustainable outdoor space.
