Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’
If you’re looking for an unusual plant to bring enjoyment and whimsy to your gardening endeavors, then Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle‘ is for you! Native to South Africa, Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ is recognizable by its distinctive leaves, which are narrow, spiral tipped with glandular hairs. Its thick, tightly curled leaves on short stems arise from an underground bulb. Fragrant yellow flowers appear in spring on flower spikes that are adorned with 10-20 blooms per spike. The blossoms have a pleasant fragrance that is slightly sweet, with a hint of vanilla.
Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ does best in full sun. You’ll want to let the soil dry out between waterings. One of the best things about this distinctive and eye-catching plant is that there are no pest or disease problems with ‘Frizzle Sizzle,’ making it an ideal home garden plant.
Keep in mind, when Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ sends up its flower stalks in spring, it often causes the tips of the leaves to brown. This is a natural occurrence. If you don’t want this to happen, simply remove the flower stalks as soon as they start to grow to prevent leaf tip browning.

I've only had this plant for just a couple of weeks and it's grown by leaps and bounds! And it is already sending up a shoot of flowers!! Now I wish I had ordered more than one plant! I've got to say, that every plant I've purchased from Logee's has been perfect! Very well packed, so the plants always arrive in good condition even if the box they come in is smashed!
