Eucomis bicolor - Pineappple Lily - POTTED

Plant type: Bulb

RHS Award of Garden Merit
Probably the best form of pineapple lily to start with, growing to around 18" and bearing creamy flowers with purple edges. The rich-green fleshy leaves are wide and usually heavily marked with random purple spots on the underside. Excellent in pots and well drained borders Hardy provided the soil is well drained.

Eucomis originate in Southern Africa and are commonly known as 'Pineapple Lilies' due to the obvious resemblance of the flower head and its crown of leafy bracts. The display lasts from summer to late autumn which is exceptional for a bulb. They make excellent container plants and are lovely in the border. Water and feed well whilst in growth, but keep the soil dry in winter. Eucomis are surprisingly hardy provided they have a winter mulch and good drainage.
