    Description

Eucomis comosa - Pineapple Flower

This listing is a pack of 5 seeds

This is a hardy bulbous plant, related to the Hyacinth, that comes from South Africa. Called the Pineapple Flower (or Pineapple Lily) on account of it's huge flowering stem, which bears a fanciful resemblance to a pineapple. The flowers are tightly packed onto the flowering stem which can be as much as 60 cm tall or more. Even after the flowers have faded, the seedpods that form continue to make the spike look attractive - extending the period of use of this plant.  This species is smaller in stature the the other ones I sell and has white flowers.

The bulb is very large and the leaves die down each year. The bulb will produce offsets which can either be left in-situ or planted up elsewhere to propagate the plant further. Leaf cuttings will also produce bulbils which can be potted up and grown on. 

Quick and easy from seed, it still needs to be a fair size before it flowers. Well grown it may flower in it's 3rd year, however 5 or 6 is more likely. Once flowering commences the spikes get larger and more spectacular every year.
