Bupleurum is also known as Hare's Ear, due to the appearance of its simple leaves trailing each stem. In quite beautiful fashion, the stem appears to grow right through these leaves, with masquerading flowers appear at the top of each. Its coloration is called chartreuse, named after its resemblance to the French liqueur of the same hue. Its greenish contrasts reflect the flora which surrounds the current Bay Area landscape: green and full of life.
Bupleurum is a welcoming tribute to the marvels of mid-Spring. To care for these beautiful flowers, regularly change the water in their vase while trimming their stems.
