Healing Bulbinella


Amazing HEALING Properties of BULBINELLA (Bulbine frutescens)
INDIGENOUS TO South Africa
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!
