Eucomis bicolor


Product Description: 3 bulbs
Order Code: 21-5
Common Name: Pineapple Lily
Availability: Currently Unavailable to Order

 

Lime-green flowers, edged in purple, often with attractive mottled stems. They are scented, though some find the smell reminds them of cooked cabbage, but one can hardly fault their flowering and interesting seed heads from late August till the frosts, Aug/Sept 18" tall (45cm)

Commonly named the Pineapple flowers as the topknot of leaves above the flower head does resemble that fruit. South African in origin the appear above the ground only after the frost and go dormant with the autumn frosts so planted deeply can be regarded as being hardy in most of the UK. They like moisture retentive soils in sunny conditions and the depth to which to plant them will come on a label on the bulb, these would probably be planted about 6" apart, slightly closer in a pot. These varieties can be successfully potted and grown on the patio. After flowering many have interesting seed heads that colour up to provide their own interest.
