Info

A magnificent, hardy & easily grown garden plant from South Africa. To 2’ tall & spreading to 3’ across, “Pineapple Lily” is a summer bloomer, sending up large, pineapple-like spikes of white flowers, which, with age, turn green & remain lovely till Fall. The very attractive leaves are soft green & wavy. A member of the Hyacinth family, it also makes an excellent & unusual cut flower. Once established, Eucomis autumnalis doesn’t require much attention, thriving in rich well-drained soil. Best in full sun but tolerates shade. Hardy to 20 °F.

Info

From the South African Drakensberg Mountains, these succulent bulbs produce fluted, bright green leaves edged purple in summer, and clusters of flowers late in the season that, from a distance, do appear much like a pineapple-on-a-stick. Tolerant of poor drainage but would appreciate summer moisture. Frost hardy to USDA zone 5/6 with mulch. Otherwise zone 7 and above.
