Drimia

Its name derives from Greek and literally means "sour, bitter", referring to the flavor of its bulb, as in the past it was widely cultivated for its medicinal virtues. Studies in progress are trying to demonstrate how this succulent can be used, for example, for the insecticidal effects due to some toxic substances contained in its roots. It is a typical succulent highly appreciated for the bulb exposed out of the ground, but mostly for its inflorescences: in spring, in fact,  it blooms with conical clusters, consisting of dense white flowers that exceed even 40 centimeters in height. With Drimia you will have an opportunity to admire a really beautiful view, paying very little attention to its cultivation!
