Eucomis autumnalis also commonly known as the pineapple plant because of the arrangement of leaves on the top of the flower. This is a late flowering variety with white flower spikes, which then produce white seed heads. They are not deemed to be hardy over winter so need to be kept away from the cold indoors, I have however for many years left them in the garden to flower the following year by giving them a good mulching before the winter sets in. Eucomis are also very good for containers.
