I can pretend I am on a tropical island when the Eucomis flowers bloom.
Maybe I will set up some lawn chairs nearby and add a parasol to my favorite drink.
I leave the larger Pineapple lilies in the ground year-round despite living in Zone 7. I think the key to their survival is good drainage, so that they do not rot while dormant.
The little, pink Alohas stay in pots which are brought in for winter.
The spikes of both resemble elongated pineapples with blooms covering the sides and a tuft of green on top.
I am feeling a bit tropical today!
