Eucomis comosa ‘Sparkling Burgendy’ is an impressive bulbous perennial that is loved not only for its exotic flowers, but also for its rosette of burgendy waxy leaves that can grow up to 2ft long.
In late summer it produces a strong stem of pink/purple star shaped flowers topped by leaves making it look similar to a pineapple fruit. In autumn deep purple pods grow to give continued interest.
