It's a lovely thing, Linda. Your perseverance paid off. I planted a Eucomis (9 years ago according to my record) and it's produced leaves every year but has never yet produced a flower. Out of curiosity, I just checked on it - it has 2 leaves at the moment but no flower. I think I need to give it up ;)


Congratulations! Funny how animals seem to know which plants we fuss over the most... and then of course target them.
I overwintered mine the same way for years until I heard a rumor they were hardier than you'd expect. I experimented on a few seedlings first and found out it's true! I don't know just how far you can push them but mine have made it through three winters, with lows down to zero.
Let me know if you want a few seedlings to experiment with next year :)


Lovely! And in a very different climate mine is flowering at the same time. Plants--they're amazing.

It's beautiful.

hb — I saw your Eucomis and thought mine looked like a sibling.

Excellent! Is it not hardy in your area thus you've left it in a container?

Linda Brazill

DANGER - Apparently hardy to Z6 so it might survive here. I think our winters are too iffy now that we’re not getting good snow cover to plant if outside.

I have several these (they've spread) and I so wish they kept that lovely burgundy color.

Linda Brazill

BARBARA — Yes. That great burgundy color is a big part of the reason to grow this one.
