Info

The rare Eucomis vandermerwei is native only to the small, high rainfall region in the Northern Drakensberg Mountains (Steenkampsberg range) just east of Pretoria, South Africa. In the wild, they are found in well-drained rocky crevices, free from winter moisture. In the garden, the dwarf Eucomis vandermerwei makes a wonderful 1' wide rock garden plant. Eucomis 'Octopus' is a vigorous selection with narrow, ground-hugging green leaves, heavily specked with dark purple. The dark purple, mini pineapple-looking flowers top the foliage starting in July...just darling. If kept dry when dormant, these should prove to be quite winter hardy.

This rare species of pineapple lily is native to a small area of South Africa. The narrow green leaves are heavily ruffled and boldly covered in purple spots. The pineapple-like inflorescences have purple flowers that top the foliage in late summer. Should be hardy for us if kept dry when dormant.
