Product Details

Edible native bushfood with nice neat upright leaves and spikes of bright yellow flowers. Allow to grow and mature for a couple of years before harvesting underground corms which may be roasted. We enjoyed this roasted at the Merri creek yam daisy celebration several years ago.

I really like bulbine lilies, the tubers are large and reliable
