Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst'

Description :

Black Plant

The Eucomis genus belongs to the lily family and is native to South Africa. The bulb produces a rosette of flowers from the heart of which a stem appears bearing dense flower spikes. It is known as the Pineapple lily as it looks very like the fruit of a pineapple. ...

An exotic touch for your garden. Although it does not like the cold, Eucomis is a worthwhile addition for its dramatic effect or as a focus plant.

Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst' is an original selection with purple-black leaves and flowers. As black-coloured plants are relatively rare Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst' has its place in our collection despite its lack of hardiness.

We grow it in the ground in a sheltered position in good, permeable soft soil, which must be well drained in winter. It appreciates the addition of some rough sand and mulching in regions with cold winters.

Or an easier solution is to grow Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst' in a large container buried in the ground during the growing season and stored inside away from the frost and excessive damp in the winter (in an equal mixture of good garden soil, coarse sand and good compost).
