Pineapple Flower or Pineapple Lily are the common names of the flowering plant that is scientifically known as Eucomis autumnalis.
This stunning and uncommon plant is the representative of the hyacinth family and grows in southeastern southern Africa. It thrives on rocky and slopes rich with grass.
Info

EUCOMIS autumnalis – die gewone pynappelblom – is ‘n inheemse plant wat vreugde bring met baie blomme in die somer. Hierdie plante verskyn van nêrens na hul winterslaap en hul koninklike regop koppe (wat soos ‘n pynappel lyk) is maandelank in die midsomer ‘n ware gespreksonderwerp. Die naam Eucomis beteken “mooiharig” of “kuif” – wat ‘n gepaste naam vir hierdie plant! Ek is so bevoorreg om ’n hele paar van hulle in my tuin te mag hê!!
