    In April, spires of sweetly scented, nodding yellow flowers open on strong un-branched stalks, above succulent leaves.

  6. ALBUCA SPIRALIS

    In spring, spikes of orchid-like chartreuse-yellow flowers open. But then begins the amazing show.....The leaves grow upright at first but then curl round and round as if they have been in curlers. The whole effect is utterly incredible. Furthermore, on occasion, it will re-bloom later in the season. In summer it goes quickly dormant to await another "Jack in a Box" surprise next spring! It is easily over wintered indoors on a sunny window sill when you should stop watering to let the bulb go dormant. Easy-to-grow, this rarely-offered, startling, and quite unique plant is native to the Western Cape Province of South Africa. It is best treated like a succulent, with lots of sun and a well-drained soil, which can be dried out between waterings. Hot and dry conditions seem to encourage the most extreme leaf coils. Very desirable but not commonly available. ... Learn More
