Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' (Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy')

A cracking form of this South African bulb - even the leaves are a rich purple. For full sun in a well-drained soil

I'd really like to visit your garden, Andrew, you have so many unusual plants. This is another beauty - I've got more of your photos in my favourites than I have of mine in my gallery....

lol Bamboo, it is georgous can you take cuttings from the leaves like the pineapple.

No, it's not related to the pineapple, You would have to take small offsets from the mother bulb and grow them on to flowering size
