Classic beauty 👌🏼 - Eucomis bicolor is quite hardy apparently so many have seen them come back from winter. I haven’t been brave enough to leave mine out, I should do really but as I bring all the others in I hate to leave it outside on its own 😂
I think my #desertislandplant THIS YEAR would be #eucomisbicolour #pineapplelily I got so excited when the leaves first showed. I loved the spotty leaves and the purple edged ones. The anticipation for the flowers was intense and I loved them when they arrived. I loved that they were great insect magnets for such a long time. When the frost came early they looked stunning. Finally I collected the dried flowers and put them in pretty glasses around the house so I continue to admire them.
This weather is pants! The wind kept me awake so I started early harvesting eucomis seeds at the kitchen table. Don’t cough when you’re doing this job! #eucomis #pineapplelily #seeds #seedharvest #driedflowers
Morning everyone. Sunny Sunday here. This year was my first try at growing pineapple lilies, inspired by seeing them here on GardenTags. I’m just a little bit obsessed! #lily #lilies #pineapplelily #eucomis
Eucomis bicolor will definitely return for many years and you should get new bulbs forming too. They can soon clump up. Unfortunately mine are habitual sleepers and take forever to wake up. The leaves are not fully out and one bulb has not even worked up yet 😳 @valjones-hughes @clipperty
The labelling wasn’t very specific Jaqueline @awomanonabike (a real cheapie) but it looks like it. I’ll have to wait til it’s fully out though to know for certain. Chuffed with it whatever the variety!
