The delicious ornamental Pineapple Plant (Ananas comosus) is a beautiful houseplant or outdoor landscaping plant that has textural blades of foliage and curious blooms that form into juicy sweet Pineapples!

Enjoy the long arching greenery that grows like others in their Bromeliad family, sporting a spikey edge and architectural growth habit that lends itself to formal and informal gardens, planters and garden borders! Baby plants, called pups or daughters, form around the base for you to transplant or let colonize small areas for more fruit! Each forming a tall stalk that will hold a single spikey fruit aloft for you to admire!

After your plant is a few years old, you’ll see a colorful, spikey ball forming in the center as the bracts around it become rosy reds and pinks. Pinkish blooms poke out from these prickly clusters, calling pollinators and hummingbirds to assist pollination.

Planting and Application:

Grown for centuries in warm climates and indoors as unique air-cleaning houseplants, Pineapples provide texture, color and unique conversation starters anywhere you have a sunny area for them to grow in! Add interest poolside or in rows of potted plants. Combine with other plants in a mixed-planter to add intriguing textural elements.

The sharp edges of the leaves will create formidable barrier plants when planted in rows or groupings where you’d like to deter foot traffic.

The fruit of course can be eaten fresh, juiced, added to fruit salads or grilled to bring out the sweetness. Fantastic additions to any sweet or savory recipe, you’ll enjoy going out onto your back porch to harvest your own fruit for that breakfast smoothie or ham dinner!
