Eucomis 'Joys Purple' - POTTED

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : *sorry - out of stock
This Eucomis has possibly the most colourful flowers of all the hybrids with tones of the richest purple that you could imagine, set against cream. The leaves are a dusky mauve-green and the flowers stem stands around 2 1/2ft high once fully grown. This is an excellent choice both for containers or a sunny border. Keep well watered when in growth.

PLANT IN SPRING

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. For full growing tips click on 'Cultivation Guides' on the menu on the left.
