I'm rather taken with this cultivar of Eucomis comosa, it has pale flower buds which open darker giving a two tone effect to the flowering stem. Most notably is the inky purple/green foliage makes it stand out from the rest of the E.comosa in our collection.
These are probaly best potted now in a cool greenhouse and planted out in the spring.
Supplied as fresh bulbs ready for planting.
Eucomis Indian Summer - 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.
