Eucomis ‘Victoria’
at Digging Dog

Eucomis

Pineapple Lily

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.

Eucomis ‘Victoria’ full sun

Heightened by bronze overtones, curvy edges and streaked and speckled backsides, plus new burgundy growth, the 3 in. wide moss green straps reach nearly 2 ft. in length, sculpting a fantastic somewhat reflective roost. Beefy wine-hued stems uphold spectacular green tufted Pineapplesque towers that house a dense multitude of whitish flowers with prominent dusky violet centers. Companions such as Lepechinia hastata or Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’, echo ‘Victoria’s opulent foliar shades and distinctive purple floral hues.

Blooms July-August

Size: 2-1/4' high x 3' wide. Zone 7/8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
