Asphodeline liburnica

Asphodeline liburnica

Synonym(s) Asphodelus liburnicus
Family asphodelaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8-10)
Flowers yellow
Size 2-3'
Light sun
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Rosette of grassy leaves, with a flower stalk to 3' tall. I didn't realize until after I started the seeds for the second time that this species is quite unlikely to survive our zone 6 winters - which would explain why there are no survivors from my first attempt. Still, a few plants from that second attempt survived, and bloomed in our front Lane garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
