Eucomis comosa (punctata)


Product Description: 1 bulb
Order Code: 21-8
Common Name: Pineapple Lily
Availability: Currently Unavailable to Order

 

Impressive garden form with white, green or pink-flowers, occasionally dark stemmed which is doubly interesting. Very attractive to butterflies and hoverflies. Flowering in late August through September and in seed thereafter. 2-4ft tall.

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 being big bulbs would need some good soil preparation before planting. The bulbs are fist sized and most should flower in the summer following planting. After flowering many have interesting seed heads that colour up to provide their own interest.  These are probably the most impressive form for the garden. White, green or pink-flowered and in any combination, occasionally dark stemmed which is very dramatic. Loved by butterflies. Allow 2ft spread and make a summer feature of them. Aug/Sep 2-4ft (60-120cm)
