This Eucomis variety is characterised by its snow-white flowers and broad, smooth leaves. The latter form a green rosette for a future flower stalk. The flower stalk is in the form of a straight stem up to 30cm long. At the end is a funny tail of small green leaves. The whole stem is dotted with small flowers, which bloom from the bottom upwards.
The bulbs should be dug up every year if growing outdoors. If you use pots or boxes or portable flowerbeds, it will be sufficient to move them to a cooler location (at a temperature of 10-15C) from September until the end of winter. Flowering can be expected from March to May.

How to Plant
Guide and tips for planting eucomis bulbs
Choose the planting location: Eucomis bulbs prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.
Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.
Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 8-12 cm deep and place the Eucomis bulb with the pointed end facing up. Space the bulbs about 16-24 cm apart.
Cover the bulbs: Cover the Eucomis bulbs with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs: Give the bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Eucomis bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Mulch the area: Add a layer of organic mulch around the bulbs to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the bulbs to prevent rot.
Monitor the bulbs: Eucomis bulbs typically take about 8-10 weeks to bloom, so be patient. Once they bloom, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Eucomis plants can bloom in summer or early fall and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
