Asphodeline

provided by wikipedia EN

Asphodeline is a genus of perennial plants in the family Asphodelaceae, first described as a genus in 1830.[3] It is native to the eastern Mediterranean region and the Middle East from Italy and Algeria east to Iran.[2][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

Asphodeline has fleshy roots and fragrant, starry flowers that are yellow in May to June. It grows up to 4 ft in well-drained soil. Its foliage is blue-green and grassy, with tall, narrow flower spikes. It takes at least three years before newly planted seedlings flower. The yellow flowers always make an interesting addition to the late-spring garden. The individual flowers on the spikes open in a seemingly random order, and do not last long, being replaced quickly by other flowers.
