Pineapple Lily

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).

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

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!
