Beautiful Pineapple Lily  from South Africa with dozens of small white flowers with a dark centre arranged in a column up to a metre topped off with a little foliage 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 little clump.

Bulbs available November to April. 1 flowering size Bulb £5.  Plant available for sale at Plant Fairs and shows in different sizes.
