Eucomis autumnalis

6th August 2005

An excellent species, flowering in mid-summer. Pure white flowers in short spikes. If it gets too warm or shaded, the flower spikes can bend over at the base, and never recover.

More or less hardy, but the dormant bulbs need to be kept bone dry or they rot.
Thanks to Trecanna Nurseries - I took this picture of their plant at one of their "African Weekend" open days.

Is it rude to say that I'm not convinced? This looks like E. zambesiaca to me. It does get about a bit.
