So far I have shared two of my ‘Top Three’ plants.
Here is number three, blooming while all others are wilting.
It is named Eucomis/ Pineapple lily.
I used to dig them up and haul them in for the winter.
I left this bunch out this year.
They look the happiest they have ever been.
I will still dig up a few to keep “in stock” just in case there is a really, cold wet winter.
The blooms are tiny flowers in rows along a central column.
Florets open from the bottom first. Each array of blooms if topped by a tuft of leaflets.
The effect as a whole makes the blooms resemble tall, skinny pineapples.
Easy care, late bloomer.
No wonder it is one of my ‘Top Three’.
I do have a smaller type of Eucomis in pots, named ‘Aloha’, which is not blooming yet.
