Eucomis 'Bicolor' grows to 50cm in height, has pale wavy, shaped leaves with purple-spotted stems and star-shaped pale green flowers, each edged with maroon, with rosettes of leafy bracts. As they begin to seed the flowers swell and inflate taking on a more architectural look. Provides lots of interest from mid-summer until the first frosts.
This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant. Ideal for pots and containers or in the border.
Plant in good soil or peat free compost in sun 5" (13cm) deep, 10" (25cm) apart or in pots in a sunny position. Allow for 3 bulbs in a 14" (35cm) pot. Water well in summer and feed with your favourite tomato fertiliser or use an organic feed such as EcoGro Booster. For winter protection, mulch or lift and store dry in a frost free location.
