Eucomis comosa, pack of three bulbs

Also known as the Pineapple Lily, Eucomis comosa is an interesting perennial, bearing wavy green leaves and spikes of flower heads, each composed of many tiny, star-shaped flowers. These exotic flowers are cream coloured, which contrast beautifully against the purple tones found beneath the leaves and on the stems. The racemes are topped by a small rosette (giving the plant the appearance of a pineapple!) 

Clump forming, this South African native is ideal for positioning amongst summer bedding plants to offer height and interest to the border. It will also make a striking container specimen.
