D0220 Eucomis comosa 8 seeds 2.31

A South African native, the name Eucomis comes from the Greek word eukomos, meaning lovely-haired, in reference to a crown of bracts on the flower. Although it is easy to start from seed, it can take two to five years before the plant reaches blooming size. After the blossoms fade, the purple seed capsules carry on the show. From spring to fall, this handsome bulb is great looking in the perennial border. The flowers are excellent as cut flowers with a long vase-life. Plant bulbs six inches deep (15 cm) and one foot apart (30 cm) in the fall. Here in our climate of the Pacific Northwest, you can plant in spring after danger of frost is past. When planting throw in a handful of bone meal and mix with the soil. This perennial will come back year after year, giving a tropical look to the garden. To grow Eucomis in a container, plant at a depth where the neck of the bulb is barely peeking out of the soil.
