Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral PeeperKeeper On May 22, 2008, PeeperKeeper from Georgetown, TX (Zone 8a) wrote:

Bulbine does well here in zone 8. Some of the shopping centers around here have started using it and it was just beautiful this Spring.

However, I just noticed that it is the first plant that either rabbits or deer have decided to feast on in my yard. We moved here (built a new house) about 6 months ago, and this is the first time I've noticed anything being chewed on although we have lots of deer and rabbits. I chased a jackrabbit out of the front yard the other day when I came home after dark, so I suspect him to be the culprit.

I bought this plant at a farmers market. When I bought it it only had two flower heads and one broke in transport. It got another and I started dead heading and it exploded with buds. It had about ten at once, some get a little leggy but not all. It loves it here in zone 8 so far.
