This tough-as-nails South American counterpart to our native star grass is truly a much showier member of the genus. The 2' wide clump of fuzzy, green, lily-like leaves is smothered from June through November with small, 6 petaled yellow stars. Neither drought nor heat seem to affect the performance of this cute little bulb. H. decumbens is best planted where it can be viewed close up as an accent specimen.
