Eucomis *comosa - Pineapple Lily - DRY BULBS (Jan to Apl)- Small bag ( 1 bulb)

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : Dry bulbs available from Jan to Apl
This is a spectacular and variable form of pineapple lily. The leaves are spear shaped, up to 2ft long and can be either green, purple or anything inbetween. The flowers are again variable but usually white with a pink or purple centre - the flower spikes rise to around 30" with a bract of leaves atop. Superb in a container or in a sunny sheltered border.

South African Collection

PLANT IN SPRING

Eucomis originate in Southern Africa and are commonly known as 'Pineapple Lilies' due to the obvious resemblance of the flower head and its crown of leafy bracts. The display lasts from summer to late autumn which is exceptional for a bulb. They make excellent container plants and are lovely in the border. Water and feed well whilst in growth, but keep the soil dry in winter. Eucomis are surprisingly hardy provided they have a winter mulch and good drainage. For full growing tips click on 'Cultivation Guides' on the menu on the left.
