Bulbine frutescens is a species of flowering plant in the genus Bulbine, native to southern Africa (South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland).
Bulbine comes from the Greek word bolbine, a general word for a bulbous plant, but particularly Ornithogalum. The name is misleading, as plants do not have a bulbous base.
Bulbine frutescens is mostly dormant in summer, blooming in the spring, and then again in autumn although somewhat less. It can be propagated easily by stem cuttings. The cuttings can be planted immediately and kept in a shady area. They do not need any special attention or treatment, and build strong roots in a couple of months.
