Retail Value: $20

Albuca humilis is a perennial bulbous plant. It grows from ovoid, white bulbs which, in summer, form few (usually from 2 to 4) narrow, long, green smooth, glabrous leaves. It is a geophyte: this means that, in winter, its leaves dry up and die, leaving the bulb as the only living part. It’s the bulb that, in late winter-spring, form the inflorescence in the plant’s natural environment, and then, in summer, it forms also the leaves. The inflorescence is a corymbous, developing on a 10 centimeters long stem, which bears one to three white-green flowers, with six tepals each.
