how to grow and care
Nancy requires moderate care and thrives in conditions similar to their native habitat. They prefer bright, indirect light, well-draining soil with ample organic matter, and regular watering while in growth, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Nancy is sensitive to overwatering and poor drainage. Challenges include vulnerability to root rot and pests such as aphids. Seasonally, nancy may require reduced watering in winter during dormancy and increased humidity during active growth in spring and summer.

7 most common species:
Wurmbea punctata
Slope dipidax
Slope dipidax is a flowering plant that displays a striking arrangement of spotted blooms, hinting at its namesake. The petals, often a delicate white with pronounced maroon speckles, emerge from slender, grass-like foliage. Adapted to well-draining soils, slope dipidax thrives in open, sunny habitats where its bulbous root system can store vital nutrients to sustain bloom cycles.
Wurmbea marginata
Wurmbea marginata
Wurmbea marginata is a delicate perennial herb distinguished by its narrow leaves and a striking inflorescence of white to pink flowers edged with a distinctive margin, often a deeper pink. Flourishing in well-drained soils, it emerges from a small bulb which enables it to survive the dry summers of its native habitats. Its dainty appearance belies a resilience well-suited to the Mediterranean climates where it thrives.
Wurmbea recurva
Wurmbea recurva
Wurmbea recurva is a perennial herb noted for its curved flowering stems which arch elegantly as the plant matures. It typically bears narrow leaves and small, star-shaped flowers that may vary in color. This plant thrives in well-drained soils, often in areas with seasonal climates where its bulbous storage organs allow survival through dry periods. Its distinct curvature makes it recognizable among other flora.
Wurmbea variabilis
Wurmbea variabilis
Wurmbea variabilis is a small, bulbous perennial herb that showcases a variable palette of star-shaped flowers, often white or tinged with pink. Its narrow, grass-like leaves emerge in tufts, creating a delicate appearance. This plant thrives in open grasslands and woodlands, where its adaptability to diverse conditions reflects in its very name. The flowers’ striking design, with six tepals and distinctive stamens, makes wurmbea variabilis easily recognizable and a subtle highlight among its native landscape.
Wurmbea glassii
Mosquitolily
Mosquitolily is a flowering perennial with a slender, upright growth habit. Its delicate blossoms, typically white or pale pink, cluster at the stem's apex. Evolving in arid regions, mosquitolily has narrow leaves that minimize water loss. This species thrives in sandy soils, displaying an elegant resilience against harsh, sun-baked environments. Its bulbs enable survival through extreme conditions, lying dormant until favorable growth seasons arrive.
Wurmbea latifolia
Wurmbea latifolia
Wurmbea latifolia is a perennial herb characterized by its broad leaves and petite stature. Notably, the leaves are wide oblong to spatula-shaped, cradling the delicate clusters of white to pink flowers that bloom in spring. Thriving in open woodlands and grassy slopes, wurmbea latifolia has evolved to seize the sunlight of its partly shaded habitats, optimizing energy capture with its expansive leaf surface area.
Wurmbea dioica
Early nancy
Early nancy is a perennial herb distinguished by its two-ranked flowers, male and female blooms on separate plants. The linear leaves and small, star-shaped white to pinkish flowers bloom in late winter to spring, typical in open grasslands. Its underground tubers enable survival through harsh conditions, resprouting annually.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
