Stock Number: 65640
Availability: In Stock
Family: Asparagaceae
Cultural Code: HH CGH what's this?

Once again in stock and available! The lovely "Purple Pineapple Lily" with somewhat succulent burgundy foliage forming a wide succulent rosette from which arise the distinctive greenish white flowers closely packed on a long succulent spike lasting months (typically topped with a bizarre topknot of leaflets, thus resembling a pineapple); remember that this needs a slight winter dormancy even if grown in a greenhouse pot. Hardy outdoors here (usually) if planted deeply and mulched thickly; more reliably hardy in the deep south.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
