The Bulbine ReunionBulbine WMM.wmv

Bulbine frutescens is a succulent perennial native to parts of Africa.  It spreads by clumps and produces orange or yellow flowers on long stems that are held above the fleshy, linear, onion-like leaves.  The leaves contain a jelly-like substance that has medicinal uses.  It belongs to the same family as aloes and haworthias. 

Chives, (NOT-DA-BULBINE!)however they may enjoy crashing bulbine parties, are native to Europe, Asia, and North America.  They have hollow tubular leaves and are grown for both culinary and ornamental purposes.  They also spread by clumps, but are a member of the Allium or onion family.  Obviously enjoy crossing the globe to infiltrate a bulbine reunion, under disguise, to perhaps engage in some international plant sex.Be on the lookout for such intrigue in your garden!
