Eucomis (??)


Also called a Pineapple Flower & Pineapple Lily

I planted the bulb in a pot on 30th May 2008 and it had one flower, this year 2011 it now has three, I put it in the greenhouse in the Autume for safety, I found out that I can take leaf cuttings in early summer, may have a go.

They are lovely to grow EL in a decent sized pot. They come on late then last well into the autumn. Yours look magnificent. I have a group in the garden, for years, grown from one bulb but they seldom bloom. They are pretty hardy, and the self set seed grows easily, if the pot is near soil. The offsets grow away easily too. This year I havn't bothered with them in pots. The bulbs are 'resting'on the potting bench outdoors.
