Eucomis

Eucomis

Originally from South Africa, Eucomis is also known as the Pineapple Lily.  It's easy to spot the origin of its common name when the plant is in flower, with a leafy crown atop its floral spike consisting of many star-shaped flowers.  Unless you live in the deep south it's best to grow it as a container plant and move it outside when it is warm.  In summer when it is in active growth, be sure to water frequently and generously.  The leaves die down in winter.  Keep it dry until growth starts again in the Spring.

Eucomis Comosum Sparkling Burgundy has lovely dense purple flowers borne on an erect stem.  The leaves are striking in itself, sending up burgundy foliage in the Spring, followed by the 2 foot spikes of tiny starry flowers in late Summer, with the foliage changing to a deep green.  In the Fall, the foliage reverts back to burgundy.  Two months of unique flowers plus attractive leaf color from Spring to Fall!  What more could you want in a plant?
