Pineapple Lily - Freckles
Freckled Leaves on Dwarf Pineapple Plant
Eucomis Freckles, Eucomis 'Freckle's, is a surprisingly hardy dwarfing Pineapple Lily that emerges in the spring from a large purplish bulb.
It develops unique and bold foliage that adds something different to borders or containers from spring to fall.
This intriguing ‘Freckles’ Pineapple Lily has a vigorous, clumping habit, and produces spotted (freckled) leaves with wavy margins.
The dense tufts of the olive green leaves have purple-flecked spots.
The delightful rose red pineapple-like flowers appear in fall. The flowers are borne on short, stout fleshy stalks.
The bulbs should be planted at a depth of two to three times their width in spring. It requires summer moisture, and somewhat dry conditions during its winter dormant period. It is best to add mulch over the winter.
With its tropical look, this distinctive and unusual sun loving plant exhibits a grand, clumping habit that blends well in combination containers.
The red flowers of ‘Freckles’ are excellent for cutting and last up to six weeks in a vase.
This charming dwarf Pineapple Lily shows off its amazing colors in full sun.
'Freckles’ allow a gardener to experience something new and different, so if you are a gardener that likes to try something new, ‘Freckles’ makes a great choice!
