This wonderful, attractive, small but hardy bulb, previously known as Drimiopsis maculata, is tolerant of neglect and fairly easy to grow.
Ledebouria petiolata is a hardy, semi-deciduous, shade loving, small bulbous plant with beautifully spotted leaves. The lovely leaves are the attraction of this plant as the white flowers that appear from Sept to Apr are inconspicuous. Multiplies easily by producing side bulbs. It is an attractive garden and container subject for dappled shade and can be utilised as a groundcover.
Not much is known about Ledebouria petiolata pollinators, however it is known to be visited by generalist pollinators such as honey bees.
