The scoop on Eucomis Aloha Leia Hybrid

Starry burgundy flowers strung along multiple spikes, purple spotted leaves with wavy edges and the sweet, warm scent of coconut - this eucomis earns an up close spot where it can be appreciated. Eucomis Leia is a petite beauty that matures to 12" and clumps to a 15" rosette. Blooming with dark purple buds and saturated plum pink flowers during July and August, this easy care breakthrough adds interest, and color all season long . . . plus fragrance! Winter hardy to zone 6 with protective mulch.

Why Grow Pineapple Lilies?
