Eucomis is an attractive late summer flowering bulb. Can also be grown as pot plant.
All the delight of a Pina Colada, encapsulated in a plant! Eucomis ‘Autumnalis’ is otherwise known as the ‘Pineapple Flower’ and is characterised by its crown of bracts resembling the top of a pineapple. Sturdy spikes of pure white buds open progressively, unfurling into star-shaped blooms with glittering anthers. Hailing from South Africa, this tender perennial will add tropical panache to your beds, borders, and containers in the summer months. Simply overwinter indoors to provide protection from cold snaps and waterlogging. Boasting an RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure your Eucomis ‘Autumnalis’ will be strong and robust.
With pillars of densely packed, star-shaped blooms topped by a crown of spiked bracts, Eucomis ‘Comosa’ makes an unusual, striking addition to borders and summer container displays. Alternatively referred to as the ‘Pineapple Flower’, Eucomis will bring a dash of tropical charm to your garden. Each pearly white petal and lush green bract is outlined with a margin of contrasting maroon-purple, enhanced against a backdrop of wavy-edged, arching foliage. The flowers are followed by shiny seedpods which extend interest well into autumn. This variety also makes an extraordinary cut-flower, lasting for weeks in a vase.
Eucomis Sparkling Burgundy is a Pineapple Lily with dusky pink-purple flowers with purple leaves.
