This very unusual plant from South Africa features thick spiraling deep green foliage and very fragrant flowers. Spikes of flowers appear in the summer and smell faintly of vanilla and butter. Albuca prefers well drained soils that are kept evenly moist (but not overwatered) in the cooler months of the year but can be drought tolerant when the weather is warm. Bulbs are not cold hardy so plan to lift the bulbs and store them for the winter or plant in a container that can come inside when the temperatures drop.
