Eucomis ‘Sparkling Burgundy’
Hardiness Zones: 6a-9
Size: 20" x 2'
Outstanding Features: When your friends who aren’t gardening geeks see this plant, they say "WOW! What is that?" The striking purple strap-like leaves make quite an accent in the garden. Then the pineapple like bloom comes along in late summer and Wows you all over again. It is also good for pots in colder climates. This plant will grow in a wide range of soil conditions and is drought tolerant. Selected and introduced by plantsman Tony Avent, who has a long row of them planted at his gardens in Raleigh, NC. It is also good in a tropical garden.
Care: Full sun for best leaf color; will grow in shade
