More Information

Description Can you believe that 'African Night' pineapple lily (Eucomis) is more closely related to asparagus than pineapple? It's one of the reasons we're amazed by this perennial. While it may be lacking tropical fruit, everything else about this perennial resembles a pineapple plant. Broad, burgundy leaves emerge in early summer, growing similar to a Bromeliad. The foliage lightens as it ages and turns green by late summer. When the flowers appear, you'll understand why it's called pineapple lily. Tall scapes of flowers bloom above the foliage, with inflorescences resembling pink spikey fruit.

The best part? This tropical-looking perennial is hardy down to zone 6. It's fairly easy to grow but requires extra winter protection in cooler zones. If it doesn't emerge the following spring, don't worry. It's one of the last plants to break from dormancy and may not start growing until summer!
Details Botanical name: Eucomis 'African Night'
Common name: Pineapple lily
Zone: 6 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3' x 4'
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Dark purple and green
Season of interest: Summer and fall
Uses: Accent, container planting, ornamental, cottage garden, tropical garden, specimen
How To Grow Soil: Grows best in average to fertile well-draining soils.
Light: Sun (6+ hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun). We suggest cooler climates choose locations with sun for best performance.
Water: Average. Grows poorly in water-logged soils.
Spacing: 4 feet
Fertilizing: In average soils, none needed. In poor soils a light application of time release fertilizer in spring is enough.
Winterizing: Requires extra winter protection in zones 6 and 7. Apply a thick layer of mulch or leaf litter to insulate the plant. If growing in containers, relocate your pot to a frost-free area for winter (garage or shed).
Maintenance & pruning: Plant the crown deep below the soil line (around 6 inches). Requires little maintenance, except for cutting the flower stalks after flowering. Foliage can be left standing to protect the plant in winter and cut back in spring.

Plant Arrived with Two Leaves Broken

The plant looked healthy overall, but with two big leaves broken (among only a few the plant has), it's not a stunner. We'll see if it does well. This year is a loss to show it off, but if it survives the winter, maybe it'll look better next year. Disappointed.
