A phenomenal display from a wondrous bulb, Eucomis belongs to the Lily family and calls
tropical southern Africa its home. While its bold architectural lines beg a prominent spot in the ground or in a container, Pineapple Lily prefers warm, sunny nooks with mulched, well drained soil, and protection from excessive winter cold and moisture.
With bronzy merlot-colored undulating margins, the olive-green swordlike foliage shows off reddish toffee-shaded linear streaks on top, while curious burgundy stipples and striations mark the undersides. The warm-looking, somewhat erect rosette gets a cheerful lift when staunch flower stalks transform into pastel columns of star-shaped rosy pink flowers topped by leafy forelocks.
Blooms late July to early October.
Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 2-1/2'–3' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.
Eucomis ‘Toffee’ (P-1450)
