I think this is one of the nicest dark leaved forms of Eucomis comosa. Nice and easy to grow and flower, looks great on its own as a specimen plant or as part of a mixed border.
These are probaly best potted now in a cool greenhouse and planted out in the spring.
Supplied as fresh bulbs ready for planting.
Eucomis Sparkling Rosie - Flowering Size Bulb
- Eucomis or Pineapple lilies are hardy perennial bulbs from Southern Africa. They are very easy to grow and will flower every year requiring little feed and watering. Eucomis will grow quite happily in full sun in the ground or in pots. Eucomis grow well in pots as they don't like winter wet. If planting in the ground choose a dry spot such as under a wall or incorporate lots of grit when you plant.
