Here’s a recent garden combo that we’ve been enjoying with purple eucomis (pineapple lily), Agapanthus ‘Navy Blue, backed with Foeniculum vulgare ‘Purpureum’ (bronze fennel).
The pineapple lilies have been just grand this summer in the garden. Here is a recent image of one of our favorites…Eucomis ‘Sparkling Burgundy’ in its full splendor. Hardiness 6b-8b. Eucomis autumnalis ‘Naude’s Neck’ is a dwarf that’s just amazing, and the flowers last for months in the garden. Eucomis are both drought and heat
Eucomis ‘Sparkling Burgundy’ is also looking quite nice in the garden today as you’ll see if you join us for the final two days of our Summer Open Nursery and Garden. This is the first plant we named and introduced over 30 years ago. Sunny and well drained soils are the key for growing this
