Eucomis *bicolor 'Alba' - DRY BULBS (Jan to Apl)- Small Bag (1 bulb)

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : Dry bulbs available from Jan to Apl
This is a superb form of Eucomis bicolor with large creamy-white flowers on sturdy spikes growing to around 18" high, followed by apple green seed pods. It is a particularly strong-growing form and one of last to die back at the end of the year. The robust rich-green fleshy leaves are unmarked making this form quite different from the more commonly grown bicolor. Excellent in pots and well drained borders Hardy provided the winter drainage is good.

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.
