South African Pineapple Lily. This easy-to-grow member of the Lily family performs best in full sun, but will also grow in part shade. It has some of the tallest spikes of this genus, with reports of 3-6' in height. I love perennials that are easy to grow and the Eucomis are at the top of the list. Most of the thirteen or so species of Eucomis are all native to South Africa.
