A fantastically different plant, with green and cream star-shaped flowers with purple edges. Flowers resemble pineapples and appear in July to August/September. Flowers sit on a rosette of wavy edged fleshy leaves and make a good cut flower. Plants grow to a height of about 40-60cm.
Pineapple Lilies prefer full sun and will tolerate part shade. They are on the edge of hardiness, so plant in a sheltered sunny position in well-drained soil and mulch the crown overwinter. In colder gardens, lift the bulbs in the autumn and replant in pots which can be kept in a greenhouse overwinter.
Pack of 10 seeds. Sow in spring or autumn. Plants generally start to flower in the third season (some flower earlier). Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
