Healing Bulbinella

Amazing HEALING Properties of BULBINELLA (Bulbine frutescens)
This plant should be a part of every South African Garden.  It has a stunning array of yellow flowers, and it's medicinal properties are amazing.  It withstands drought, survives frost. My little girl already knows to go pick herself a leaf and rub it on any scratch or wound.  Fun for kids to be their own doctor!

  2. Where can those in the USA find this plant???

  3. Hi Mama Bear
    I unfortunately am not familiar with what is available in the USA. But I am sure if you inquire at your local garden nursery they should be able to help you. Most plants you can get world wide these days. Kind regards Keren (Fabulous Farm Living)
