These unusual bulbs will give you incredibly vibrant displays this summer. From June to September they will produce spikes of burgundy red buds which open into a myriad of bright pink, star shaped flowers with a central crown of sparkling anthers.
Emerging from a rosette of pink flushed leaves, each chunky flower spike is topped with a crown-like tuft of leaves so you can see how they got their name - they look just like a pineapple! Plus at the end of the flowering season, the seed pods provide further interest for your garden.
Despite their exotic good looks, Pineapple Lilies are surprisingly hardy and will easily withstand British weather.
Perfect for planting in pots where they will excel, or straight into your garden, they will form an attractive rosette of leaves, from which the stem will rapidly grow, reaching around 50cm (20) tall.
