Eucomis bicolor

£3.75

Eucomis is a genus of bulbous plants from South Africa. Their common name ‘Pineapple Lily’ refers to the tuft of leaves held on top of the flower spike, giving the appearance of a pineapple top.

Eucomis bicolor is perhaps the most familiar and widely grown species. Glossy strap leaves emerge in late spring, followed by their remarkable flower.

Despite their rather exotic appearance, Eucomis are in fact very easy to grow, and are equally at home in a pot or in the ground. When pot grown, it can be wise to move them into a sheltered area during the winter and to repot once very few years. Grow in regular potting compost in a sunny spot.

Flowering sized bulbs offered.
