Eucomis Comosa | Pineapple Lily Comosa Bulbs
If Dr. Seuss had created plants instead of children's books, this is probably what we could have expected from him. In early summer, the Pineapple flower sprouts two-foot tall bloom spikes with over a hundred tiny florets and topped with a jaunty tuft of leaves. These bloom for weeks making them fun patio plants and good for cutting, too. Flowers are followed by attractive seedpods, extending the show.
Plant tubers 3-4" deep
Once sprouted, these plants need 1" of rain/irrigation per week.
