I've been waiting for this, and the first flowers are no disappointment!
And yes - the stem really is that dark!

Tetrarch - google Eucomis comosa "Sparkling Burgundy". It's an absolute gem and I'm made up!
What is L.clethroides burgundy - sounds interesting!

I love Eucomis...Thats a stunner Meanie...I have 'sparkling burgundy', 'Vandermernei' and 'Montana'...The sparkling burgundy isnt flowering yet...I lost a large pot of 'autumnalis' last winter..carelessness i suppose....:>)

I can see why Meanie :o))

still not sure Meanie... Bicolor is good but the dark stem on that is a winner i think..

It is for me too.
Hoping to have a few more varieties/species next year........

keeping them in pots or do you have the space ?

26 Jul, 2011

 

In pots, but that may change - I may have a new (life changing) project on the go soon..........

26 Jul, 2011

 

i'd have to use pots too. Sounds interesting, good luck !
