Heres another example of "why settle for just great flowers when you can have more?" In this case, Eucomis Sparkling Burgundy produces 20-30" spikes of tiny, starry florettes and also sends up burgundy foliage in the spring that changes to deep green and then reverts back for reddish purple in the fall. All that strappy leaf color plus two months of sturdy, attractive flowers on a single easy care plant! Eucomis, also known as Pineapple Lilies, may be grown in pots and brought inside during the winter. This new cultivar really earns its place in the landscape.
Plant tubers 3-4" deep
Once sprouted, these plants need 1" of rain/irrigation per week.
