Bowiea volubilis

Sea Onion, Climbing Onion



Bowiea volubilis

$12.95  

NEW! - This bulb is a curiosity. It's neither from the sea or related to an onion, but instead is a member of the Asparagus family. The long-lived pale green bulb can grow up to 10 inches across, from which emerges a dense froth of lacy stems climbing up to 6 feet in height (resembling an asparagus fern). In winter, the stems die back as it enters dormancy. It is treated as a succulent and thrives on neglect. Plant in well-draining soil, only half buried, and keep on the dry side in winter. Best in partial shade. In cold climates it needs to be brought indoors during the winter. Be cautious as the bulb is reported to be toxic if ingested. Native to southern and eastern Africa. Asparagaceae
