This wild bulb from South Africa's Eastern Cape Province emerges in spring to form clumps of 8" long x 2" wide, fleshy green leaves covered with dark spots (maculata means spotted). The attractive 8" tall x 1' wide clumps of foliage are topped, starting in late April and through May, with 1' tall spikes of tiny off-white bells, making quite a show when the clumps get large. Drimiopsis maculata does not like full sun, although it will take a few hours without a problem...very easy in an array of garden soils.
