More Information About Drimiopsis

Drimiopsis is a genus of South African bulbs related to Hyacinth, Muscari, Eucomis, and Scilla. Some taxonomists want to merge Drimiopsis with Ledebouria, so stay tuned. Most drimiopsis have spotted leaves and produce small, whitish, muscari-like flowers. Drimiopsis plants grow as a small clump, like a miniature hosta, and will spread slightly via offsets. Because of its small stature, Drimiopsis is perfect for a rock garden, stone wall, or container.

Drimiopsis prefers part sun in the garden and is drought-tolerant. In climates similar to its native South Africa, Drimiopsis is evergreen, but near the cold end of its hardiness range, becomes deciduous. Drimiopsis prefers well-drained soil and does not like to be wet in the winter. When you're ready to buy drimiopsis for your perennial garden, check out our online offering of drimiopsis for sale.
