Beautiful Pineapple Lily from South Africa with dotty foliage and a pineapple-like flower spike topped with a little foliar hat. Plant in well drained compost and start watering in mid-spring and place in a sunny spot. Water freely, feed occasionally. Flowering should commence in mid-summer.
Foliage will die back at some point in autumn, keep dry till spring or alternatively lift bulb and store cool and dry in a paper bag. It is likely to have reproduced itself during the growing season creating new baby bulbs which can be potted up individually or kept with the parent to make a satisfying clump.
