A deep purple leafed pineapple lily that will get to 18" tall. The foliage appears out of the ground in spring and almost bursts into growth. In late summer the 2' flower stalks have flower clusters that look like pinapples. We grow our plants in full sun with plenty of mulch but have seen stunning plants growing out of gravel.

This is among the best of all the pineapple lilies with dramatic purple foliage. The bold strap-like leaves form a rosette to two feet wide. In late summer, the clump produces a 20" tall bloom stalk resembling a miniature purple pineapple! Very easy to grow and tolerates a wide range of garden conditions. Full sun for best foliage colour. Grow through a carpet of Geranium 'Ballerina' or Sedum 'Angelina'.

The sumptuous burgundy-red, semierect rosette of strapping, waxy leaves appears more green as the weather warms. Crowned by a pineapple-like cluster of leaves, densely set starry flowers envelope thick, cylindrical maroon spikes. The purple blossoms display unique greenish tones, and add dramatic, long lasting highlights to arrangements. Showy persistent seed capsules follow.

Info

Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' is one of the darkest plants in my garden. The dark narrow leaves emerge early/mid spring with an exceptionally dark burgundy color. It looks similar to a bromeliad. The strap like leaves grow to 2 or 3 feet tall. A spike of flowers emerge late in the summer with light pink/ white flowers held up 2 or 3 feet in the center of the plant. The foliage may turn a dark bronze by the end of the season. A light mulching can help protect the crown once dormant in the fall. We over winter our plants easily outside in a zone 6 climate. This is a great plant to line the boarders of any landscape. Foliage: Dark Narrow purple foliage Flowers: A spike with white and pink flowers in late summer Height: 2 to 3 feet

The Burgundy Standard for Eucomis. Deep purple foliage and gorgeous similarly colored flowers, which if you can bring yourself to do it, make an excellent cut flower. (We have inadvertantly broken some off and know this to be true) Easy. Mulch if cold winter.

We selected this dramatic, purple-foliaged pineapple lily as a seedling in 1983, and it has now become one of the most talked-about plants in our garden. This dramatic accent plant produces strap-like foliage of dark burgundy forming a rosette to 24" wide. In late summer, the clump produces a 20" tall bloom stalk resembling a miniature purple pineapple...very cool! Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' is very easy to grow and tolerates a wide range of garden abuses. In cooler climates, it makes a great color-bowl combo plant!
