Pineapple lily bulb pack.(Eucomis comosa ‘Sparkling Burgundy’) 鳳梨百合球根包.

This specie do look more like mini pineapple when it flowers!


Bulbous perennial native in South Africa.  It has unusual flowers and the flowers do look like small pineapple.   Not cold tolerant.  USDA Zones:8-10. Best to grow it in full sun to partial shade location.  The information on the package said it is 1′ tall but I read some other info said 1′-2′ in height.  Not sure who is right…   We’ll see.  It is summer blooming plant.   Easy to grow. Its bulb looks like some kind of Daffodil bulb.  Planting this could be nice change, since it is good for cut flower as well but I don’t think I will do that unless it multiply becomes many.  Propagation by seeds, off sets, corms/bulbs and rhizomes/tubers. This one has burgundy foliage and pink flowers.

原生於南非的球根花卉.  有著像是小鳳梨似的簇生小花,有點不一樣. 不耐寒.  全日照到半日照溫暖的環境生長為佳.  種球包資料說僅高1呎. 可是查到的資料有說可到2呎的.  反正等開花就知道是多高了.  夏天開花,容易栽種. 它的球根有點像是某種水仙的球根.  種這個試看看應該不錯,做做實驗也好.  繁殖以種子,球根,塊根,側球或子球等方式. 這個種有著紅葉及粉紅色花.
