An exotic looking fragrant perennial plant that originates from southern Africa that is grown for the unusual clusters of pineapple-shaped flower heads and basal rosette of burgundy spotted leaves and stems.
The starry flowers are usually white or pale green-white with the most unusual tufts of green bracts that top each cluster, giving the pineapple like appearance of the plant. The flowers are then followed by long-lasting seed pods edged with burgundy.
Eucomis can be treated as a tender conservatory plant or placed in a mild, sheltered sunny spot in the garden. See the advice section for more details on growing.
