Eucomis zambesiaca - POTTED

Plant type: Bulb

RHS Award of Garden Merit
An easy-to-grow lower-growing Eucomis growing to around 14" and bearing pure-white flowers on upright spikes with a bract of leaves atop. The flowers appear from early summer with a second surge of blooms in September. The apple-green fleshy leaves without markings and have rippled edges. Excellent in pots and well drained borders Hardy provided the soil is well drained. Of South Africa origin.

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.
