Eucomis 'Safari Adventure'

Pineapple Lily

Get that tropical look right at home in your zone 6 garden! Beginning in early summer with deep olive green, wide, strap-shaped leaves  that lighten in intensity when the flower scapes appear. In late summer, cream flowers age to deep rosy purple. Bicolor flowers and lighter olive green leaves in early summer. Like other late season bloomers, this will be one of the last to emerge in spring. This native of South Africa is called a Pineapple Lily for good reason-the inflorescence at the top of the flower scape looks like a tropical fruit.
