Eucomis *montana - DRY BULBS (Jan to Apl)- Large bag (3 bulbs)

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : Dry bulbs available Jan to Apl
This Eucomis comes from high altitude area and is hardy in well drained soils. The flower heads are fairly narrow and the blooms are vriable but usually cream with a dark centre. The leaves are upright, usually green with darker edges. As with all Eucomis there will be variations so don't be surprised if you find pinkish flowers or purple leaves. This form is ideal both in containers and in a sunny border.

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.
