Flower Wednesday - Eucomis

Hello

Welcome to the blog as we head over to Finland for Flower Wednesday with Riitta.

Here's a strange plant called Eucomis, otherwise known as a pineapple lily.







Despite looking very exotic, it has turned out to be quite easy to grow!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

    1. It's doing really well and has self seeded into a pot of something else, no doubt we'll be swamped by them soon.

  9. We put the pots into the lean-to greenhouse which isn't heated but they just disappear over winter and pop back up again in Spring.x
