Origins of The Eucomis

This strikingly unusual plant is originally found in Southern Africa where it is hot and has summer tropical rainfalls and therefore is well suited to parts of the Australian climate being very tepid here also.

The Eucomis is related to the Hyacinth family, with its strikingly beautiful flowers, looks wonderful wherever you place them, being in pot or in the garden.

The flowers,white through to purple, make for long-lasting stunning cut flower.

This plant is also called the pineapple Lily.

Eucomis in My Garden.

Most of my garden is made up of some bought plants but mainly cuttings that I have picked up on my various walks and outing.

My Eucomis plant I bought a while ago is now producing many flowers this spring and I had the good future the other day to be able to pick up a few puppies of a main plant whilst on a walk up one of the crescents around my area.

These with great joy will be potted up and planted out in various spots in the garden, front and back.

In a few years time,no doubt, the neighbours will be complaining of the over whelming splash of large mad flowers overhanging their fences.

      I'll have to check if they are hardy here. They;d work well in my gardens.

      I grew a whole cluster in shades of pink and white a while back. They looked wonderful, but didn't survive the wet / cold of the winter here. Probably best to grow in pots if you live on clay in England, but really worth it.

      These look really good. I don't think they would be right in our garden in the UK, but they would fit in just right where I used to live in Florida.

      Beautiful lens on a great plant. It's a long time since I have seen one of these as I live in the ACT with heavty frosts, so they probably don't grow here.

      Right. That's what they are called. I have them too and my son asked what they were the other day. I do remember now.

      Is that what they're called? Eucomis? Beautiful hair? I have one and never knew its name! As a child we called them pineapple flowers for obvious reasons. Gorgeous plants, and a gorgeous lens. I must stroll by one day to look over your fence.
