Albuca nelsonii

This giant of its Genus is a bulb from the Eastern Cape area of South Africa and in areas with little to no frost it is certainly a conversation piece. Its large bulbs sit half out of the ground atop of which sits a cluster of evergreen bright green strappy leaves. Come early summer it will produce upright spikes of flowers to 1.2metres tall. The individual flowers are white with green and bronze markings and they are great long lasting flowers in the garden or vase.

Plant it in semi-shade in a pot or the open ground and given time it will build into a sizable clump. It is fairly drought tolerant as well so dry shade won’t faze it. A root bound clump in a pot can last and still flower for donkeys ages.

I have large bulbs in 8″ pots for $32.50
