Eucomis (Yoo-ka-mis) Nicknames: Pineapple Lily Family: LILIACEAE Colors: White, Pink, Purple Blooms: August/September The pineapple lily resembles a pineapple coming out of a thick spike. The name comes again from the Greeks, a combination of eu (good) and Kome (hair). Most people immediately want to smell the blooms but they have no scent-they just look like a pineapple. My favorite is the pink pineapple because the foliage has purple stripes and looks very exotic before it blooms in the summer-almost like a bromeliad. Americans classify them in the LILIACEAE family while the English place them in the HYACINTHACEAE family. They are very hardy down to 10 degrees and can handle part shade. The bulbs look like a Hershey’s kiss candy. Plant them with the tip up four inches deep in sun or part sun. You can plant them year-round and divide them any time they are not blooming. They are great to start in the summer because they grow immediately and flower in the fall.
