Drimiopsis maculata is a robust bulbous plant from South Africa to 30(-35) cm tall that spreads rapidly and has beautiful spotted leaves (maculata means "spotted"). The bulb increases rapidly at the surface of the ground, the leaves dying down in winter. They have a wide blade. Foliage are topped in spring with 30 cm tall spikes of tiny green and off-white bells, making quite a show when the clumps get large. The plant is dormant in winter and it blooms in spring (late April through May in Europe). Drimiopsis maculata is an undemanding species and is one of the most popular bulb plants.
