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.
A guide to growing Eucomis Plants
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.
