Albuca juncifolia

Albuca juncifolia

This diminutive South African bulb grows in a relatively shaded spot in my garden. It looks almost like a strange sort of striped, greenish-yellow daffodil or even a Fritillaria, nodding daintily above its grassy leaves. The flowers appear in August and September. It would look good in a pot, which could be placed in a prominent position when the bulbs are in flower, so their quaint form can be appreciated at close quarters.

Flowers in August, September.
