Proven Hardy, And Here’s The Proof

Eucomis Sparkling Burgundy, Pineapple LilyProven Hardy, And Here’s The Proof

For many years ‘Sparkling Burgundy,’ an outstanding selection of Pineapple Lily, Eucomis, has been treated like a tender perennial. Rumor had it that is was hardy, we decided to see for ourselves. In 2014 we planted one in our front garden. To our utter amusement, it has flourished and bloomed for 3 years. The photo here was taken July 26, 2017.

What’s so great about this plant is that it looks tropical, but is a hardy perennial. It boasts dramatic dark burgundy leaves that slowly change to olive green, and then revert back to dark burgundy as its large, fragrant flowers fade. On 20-30″ stalks magnificent bottle-brush-like flower clusters of tight, smokey pink florets appear over a long 6-8 week bloom period. Its flowers open bottom to top. Named for its stunning inflorescences that resemble pineapples, especially right before the flowers begin opening. Eucomis make spectacular specimens in gardens and in pots. Perennial. Proven to be reliably hardy in zones 6-9.
