Pineapple Lily

Oh YAY! My Pineapple Lily (Eucomis) finally flowered. This one seems to be called the Eucomis - "Meguru". Last year I received three plants in a pot from my mom. They never flowered so I moved the bulbs into a flower bed next to the front door in late winter. So this year one flowered. And that not too long after moving them into the garden. I'm impressed. I can't wait till next year in anticipation that more of them may flower then.

  1. That's very pretty. Never seen anything like that before. Excuse my ignorance, but why is it called a Pineapple Lily - is there a relationship?

  4. What a beautiful plant. Love the stalk of flowers with the subtle dots of purple. Plus, of course, you caught a bug. Seems to be a lot f bug hunting in SA. ;-)

  5. How wonderful Jonker. I thought it would be too cold there by you for them to grow. For some reason I always associate them with a more sub-tropical climate.
