The Bulbine lily is a great native alternative to the daffodil. Its yellow, starlike flowers create an attractive garden plant that can be placed among rocks and between other flowers and grasses.
When in flower, from September to November, it will stand at 20 to 50 centimetres tall. It tolerates the occasional frost we get in this area.
It is also known to be a nutritious food plant. The plump, round corms can apparently be roasted and eaten all year round.
