  • Pineapple Lily

    Back in Florida I grew a pineapple lily, I think I got in a trade, in a pot for several years until we sold all of our plants when we moved away. I’ve been drooling over some that I’ve been seeing lately at a few local nurseries and finally last weekend I broke down and bought one at Arbor Gate when we went to their fruit tree sale (got an apricot….and a magnolia, I know, not a fruit tree but we need to replace a tree we cut down).

    Pineapple Lily

    I have no idea which species or hybrid of Eucomis this is as the pot wasn’t labeled.

    Pineapple Lily
    I’m not sure as to their hardiness but they are from south Africa so I would guess their more inclined for warmer USDA growing zones. Maybe in cooler climates growing in pots and bringing them indoors during the winter would work.

    This beauty will be going in our new flower garden in a few weeks!

      I know they’ll winter over here in zone 8 IF they have really good drainage.

      Cool, thanks for the information Deirdre!

      Beautiful. I’ve not seen anything like that. I live in Florida, central west coast. Would LOVE to grow something like that. Thanks for sharing.

      I own one of these but this is a giant compared to mine…..I must have stunted it with a small pot, I would LOVE to own one this size!!
      Thank you again for sharing this picture with us

      We saw this plant in Vancouver, B.C. too… but I think they cannot survive outdoors here in Vancouver

    8. Sussie says:

      Wow how interesting that two stems bloom together like that.

    9. peterplants says:

      They are pretty. If you take leaf cuttings early in spring they propagate quite rapidly. With all the purple marroon colouring it may very well have Eucomus vandermerwii in its genes. It would account for the compact growth too.
