Product Description

The Eucomis is a fascinating South African specimen, with a topknot of leaves above the robust column of flowers - giving it the nickname Pineapple Lily or Pineapple Flower. Broad yellow-green leaves fit for a jungle act as a framing surround, for hundreds of waxy 1-inch star-shaped flowers with maroon edges. The Eucomis favours a sunny position with well-drained soil, just like it would be used to in the wild. Try planting with Calla Lilies and Chincherinchees to emanate the tropics, or maybeplant with Dianthus Haytor White, with brightly coloured Salvia as a backdrop for a less extravagant display. Top quality bulbs supplied. Flowers May to September. Height 50cm.

Growing at a glance…

Eucomis can be grown in most soil types, provided it is relatively fertile, well-drained, and will get plenty of sun. Plant bulbs at least 15cm deep to keep them safe from cold weather. In poor winters, apply a mulch to help protect plants from severe frosts. Water freely when in full flower. Ensure it's planted in an area that reaches full sun and isn't overshadowed by other plants as it may struggle to grow.
