From South Africa's Northern Province region of Limpopo comes the amazing giant ledebouria. Actually, it's not amazing that it comes from there, but it is amazing a plant from this region has proven reliably hardy for us since 2003. Looking more like a tropical houseplant, Ledebouria zebrina makes a 1' tall x 1' wide deciduous clump of large, fleshy, light green leaves, often highlighted on the back by small purple specks. Ledebouria zebrina clumps are adorned in mid-May with pendent bottle brush-like spikes emerging from the leaf axils...very cute!
