Description

Eucomis comosa 'Safari Adventure' has rounded mounds of glossy, wavy, finely serrated, strap-like leaves of olive-green that emerge with a wine-colored blush. Tall stalks of dense, deep rosy purple buds open up to cream and deep rose purple cylindrical bloom clusters in late summer. 'Safari Adventure's bi-colored blooms contrast well with its purple buds. Eucomis are also known as Pineapple Lily because the top of the inflorescence looks very much like a pineapple.

Eucomis comosa 'Safari Adventure' prefers full sun to part shade and average to fertile, well-drained soil. This plant may be tender so winter protection is recommended in colder areas. It is nice in a container as well as in the garden.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
