Bulbine fructescens - Succulent and Cacti

Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)

Bulbine fructescens
Common names:
Snake flower, cat's tail, burn jelly plant. It is a fast growing, branched, succulent perennial with fleshy, linear green leaves in opposite rows and clasping the stems at the base. It forms spreading clumps with grayish stems often bearing adventitious roots. I personally love this little plant, for its medicinal properties and oh so so easy to look after! She will tolerate a wide range of conditions (and even neglect!), just don't let her feet sit in water!!

The small 6-petaled star shaped flowers are carried on an upright, spreading raceme during spring (or occasionally at other times). The petals are either yellow or sometimes orange, which combines attractively with the fluffy yellow stamens to give a bi-coloured look. The fruit is a small, rounded capsule and contains black seeds which are dispersed by wind.  

Therapeutic Uses:
Bulbine frutescens is one of nature’s finest medicinal plants. It’s a remarkable first aid medicine chest all in one. Externally the freshly squeezed juice, frequently applied, is amazingly effective to take care of a wide range of skin conditions and wounds. The list is almost endless: acne, burns, blisters, cold sores etc.

Bulbine frutescens is a popular, waterwise garden plant, especially when planted en masse as a ground cover, or in rock gardens. It is also cultivated for its medicinal properties.

For best results it should be planted in well-drained soil preferably enriched with compost.
