Butterfly Attracting Perennials

Eucomis 'Dark Star'

Dwarf Pineapple Lily.
This eye catching dark leaved dwarf pineapple Lily is a hybrid of Eucomis vandermerwei. In mid-late summer plum purple flowers adorn 10" stems. We haven't tried it in pen ground here in zone 6, so would recommend growing in containers in colder climates. Wintering over the dormant roots are easy!.
