Bulbine frutesencens

I had a hard time getting a picture of Bulbine that shows off the pretty blossoms, maybe because I always try to get the Purple Heart shown off from the front.

Bulbine is a South African plant, which means it should do very well here, one of many. Succulent leaved, it looks sort of like a skinny aloe. Hardy to 10 degrees F. according to what I read, but it had a hard time with cold in the previous location and I totally lost the yellow. Love this ‘tangerine’ and it seems sto be happy in its new spot, near some water hogs, but at the top of a slope by a huge stone so the drainage is perfect.

    Drainage is important more times than not, right? I like the color tangerine and I rather enjoy saying the word tangerine.
