If you tend to like the biggest and the best, then this is the Pineapple Lily for you. Eucomis pole-evansii is a spectacular form flowering at an incredible 4-5ft (1.2-1.5m) high. The many fleshy, green leaves grow to around 3ft (90cm) long and are mildly rippled on the edges - there are no prominent markings. The flowers are pale cream with a greenish centre and they are held on an extremely sturdy upright stem. The seedpods that follow are a fresh apple-green. The leafy top bract is somewhat smaller that the width of the raceme of flowers. This Eucomis is suited to a larger container or a sheltered border , maybe against a sunny wall or hedge. The huge bulbs readily form offsets although these remain firmly attached to the mother bulb and can only be removed with the sharpest of knives.
