Bulbine frutescens creates a lively and attractive display, with its succulent foliage and bright yellow and orange flowers. The yellow-orange flowers are four-petaled and star-shaped, and bloom from late spring through to early autumn.

In cold regions, growing Bulbine frutescens in pots is a great way to enjoy this beautiful plant. Containers should be filled with a well-draining soil and placed in a sunny location. To keep the soil from becoming soggy, it's important to make sure the container has adequate drainage. During the winter months, it is best to keep the container in a sheltered area to ensure the plant is protected from harsh winds and freezing temperatures. It is also helpful to cover the soil in the container with a layer of mulch to retain heat and moisture. With the right care, this plant will bring a touch of summer to your garden all year round.
