Albuca spiralis or the corkscrew albuca is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae. Albuca spiralis is distributed over an area of the Cape from the Peninsula and Worcester throughout the Roggeveld to Namaqualand, South Africa.
Albuca spiralis 'Frizzle Sizzle' is a fragrant, winter-growing bulb, up to 8 inches (20 cm) tall. In the growing season, it forms small groups of corkscrew leaves and one central flower spike bearing hanging, yellow and green flowers. The leaves are green and up to 8 inches (20 cm) long. During the winter months when it is actively growing its wiry foliage corkscrews and twists in a most fascinating manner. The degree of spiral depends on the clone and the amount of sunlight the plant receives when the leaves started growing. The flowers are green with pale yellow margins, nodding, sweetly scented, reportedly of butter and vanilla, and look like helicopters. The smell can be quite strong on a warm sunny day.
