 Bowiea volubilis, Schizobasopsis volubilis
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Hyacinthaceae / Liliaceae)
Subfamily: Scilloideae
Climbing Onion, Sea Onion
Origin: South Africa
CaudexVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterDeciduous

The Bowiea volubilis is an interesting plant. The bulb is pale green and grows half buried in the soil. Each year it develops new branched stems that somewhat make it look like an elongated asparagus. After a couple of months the stem dries and fades, but the bulb produces another one right next.

Cultivation is not too difficult in a container such as a large pot or a hanging basket, provided that the soil is gritty and perfectly drained and the plant is placed in strong light. Stakes or wires can be provided for the climbing branches, or they can be allowed to hang down. The plant should be watered very sparingly except during the growing season, when new stems emerge from the bulb.
