‘Coco’ Pineapple Lily
We love any garden plant that brings joy through the different seasons and when you cut it to bring inside.
Burgundy leaf pineapple lilies achieve:
- 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 florist. 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!
