Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Eucomis is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

This amazing plant has thick fleshy broadly linear leaves in spear-like rosette with a pineapple-like array of purple flowers in late summer. 'Oakhurst' is a strong red purple form and has a real impact in the garden.

DARK STAR PINEAPPLE LILY

Eucomis comosa 'Dark Star'

Buy Dark Star Pineapple Lily online. Dark Star is like its sister 'Freckles', it performs in many venues. Very dark, red-black foliage is fantastic when planted with silver or gold colored foliage. Another great dwarf, hardy Eucomis from Terra Nova. Startling when planted with Cymbalaria 'Snow Wave' or Veronica 'Aztec Gold'. Equally charming flowers in late summer.
