Lily-of-the-Nile - Agapanthus orientalis
A solid garden performer, this larger, clumping bulb creates balls of good, light to dark blue flowers on long stalks held above the foliage in the summer. A great color for understory use in a shadier site.

Naked Ladies - Amaryllis belladona
For the unique life cycle alone! Often seen in lawns where a clump of strap foliage grows unnoticed in spring only to die out. In fall, flower stalks of large, pink trumpets appear, sans foliage, thus the name.
Additional Details

Daylily - Hemerocallis spp
Daylilies are both nostalgic, having grown up with them (my Dad used to count and record the numbers of flowers produced each day!), and new and exciting! There has been such terrific breeding that these garden workhorses come in an incredible range of colors, sizes, and blooming season.
Additional Details

Cape Cowslips - Lachenalia spp
Smaller S. African natives with winter foliage in green often with purple speckling or even oddly "pebbled" foliage. They produce spikes of pendent bell flowers in many colors over a long blooming period in the dead of winter. Lachenalia bulbifera has green and red on each flower and shows up near the holiday season!
Additional Details

Narcissus spp
Who can resist these harbingers of spring which naturalize and spread their riot of cheerful spring flowers in almost any climate? The choice of varieties is immense and can you say EASY!

Narcisus

Veltheimia - Veltheimia bracteata
A South-African native good for pot culture. Handsome, large nearly evergreen leaves with wavy margins support a winter flower stalk of many pendent flowers in dusty rose. A very striking specimen plant!
