Eucomis - pineapple lily - bulb

Quick Overview

2 bulbs. Longlasting pineapple flowers add a touch of tropical fun to your garden. The botanic name means "beautiful tufty hair", for the ponytail of leaves on the top - which we think is charming! Cold hardy to -5C given enough sun and a winter blanket of mulch.

Eucomis - pineapple lily'

DESCRIPTION: From the centre of a rosette of sword-shaped leaves emerges a thick stem topped with a flower spike strongly resembling a pineapple. This selection has flowers varying from pure white and cream through pale green and blush pink.
PLANTING: Happiest in sunshine and rich soil, can cope with boggy conditions
USE IN: Ideal for sunny borders, feature planting, large containers. Excellent cut flowers
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. Water and feed weekly; or if the soil becomes dry, give a good deep water. Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year. Mulch in winter if you have frost or low temperatures.
CLIMATE: Hardy to -5C
