Product Information

These unusual bulbs will give you incredibly vibrant displays this summer. From June to September they will produce spikes of cream/green flowers, each one with a thin, rich purple edge. Each flower spike is topped with a crown-like tuft of leaves you can see how they got their name!

Despite their exotic good looks, Pineapple Lilies are surprisingly hardy and will easily withstand British weather. Perfect for planting in pots 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.

In autumn, allow the plants to die back naturally, and they will reward you with bigger better displays for many years!

Care Information

Planting Advice for Eucomis:

  • Generally, plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • In warmer parts of the UK bulbs can be plant in borders, in frost-prone areas they're best in pots which can be brought undercover over winter.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.


 

Aftercare Advice for Eucomis:

  • Allow the bulb leaves to die down naturally they can give you a long and lovely spring display.
  • Water freely through the summer .
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.
  • In winter if bulbs are in the garden, apply a thick winter mulch of bark. In pots bring under cover.

 

Pruning Advice for Eucamis:

  • Cut off the old flower spikes as soon as the bloom period is over (unless you require the seeds)
