'Darkest Night' alludes to the rich, burgundy toned leaves that emerge in early summer. By the time the flowers spikes appear in late summer, the foliage will lighten in intensity. Rosy pink flowers are produced on dark burgundy stems with matching burgundy leaflets at the top of the flower spike. Like other late season bloomers such as Hibiscus or Perovskia, this will be one of the last to emerge in spring.
Eucomis are a beautiful perennial native of South Africa. They are nicknamed "Pineapple Lily" for their tall inflorescence and spiky tops that look like pineapples! Excellent as a perennial thriller in containers or the landscape. These plants can be tender and winter protection is recommended if you're growing in colder zones. Plant in full sun for the strong stems that don't flop over and cut back old leaves in late summer. Add compost around where the new growth will emerge in spring to keep it happy. Grows to about40 cms tall and the bulbs should multiply but invasively so. A real garden treat!
Pot size: 1 Litre
