Eucomis ‘Coco’ Pineapple Lily — 2 Bulbs Ships in March

(2 customer reviews)

$18.00

A tough, vigorous perennial bulb for the garden, for containers and to cut it to bring inside. 

Coco must be named for Coco Chanel and her comfortable black outfits. This bulb fits into any little spot. A wild garden, an overly planned color garden, it even works as a potted plant — that you might brush off and bring inside for a dinner party. The dark burgundy leaves reach just 12 inches, tidier than the old ‘Sparkling Burgundy’.  They look great April, May, and June. Then, compact flowers emerge.  And those flowers go on and on. We planted with red salvia and purple bachelor button. We cut for single vases and for an entire dinner party.

  • killer foliage color contrast in cool April.  Plant this underneath golden sedums, apple-green nasturtium, or with silver sage.
  • amazing unfurling flowers in wonderful June. Even in bud, they mesmerize as stacks of round purple buds and claws unpack themselves
  • big drama in the searing July. Flowers look like skinny, skeletal pineapples, reaching 2 feet, holding themselves tall and beautiful, especially with grasses or a bit tacky with old-fashioned orange daylilies.

And you can bring these flowers and leaves in for a narrow, extraordinarily long-lasting cut flower. In fact, most of the new cultivars like Coco have been developed for the cut flower industry.  Soon, you’ll see them in shops and florists. Coco is said to be smokey, coconut fragrant, but this is a new plant for us so you’ll be learning it as we do!

    Just received the bulbs. They are large and appear to be very healthy. They came packaged in a manner to maintain their health, labeled, and with a lovely hand written note of thanks. Who does that anymore! I planted them immediately and can’t wait to see what is to come.

    I planted three back in the spring. As of today I h have 12 inch blooms on all of them. The foliage is healthy and looks amazing against lighter greens in the garden.
