There are only a few eucomis species, all South African and doubtfully hardy except in warm gardens, where they may be planted in sheltered sunny beds against a warm wall. This is perhaps the easiest to grow, and always attracts attention when its curious and long-lasting flower spike appears in July and August. It is usually grown for standing outside as a container plant after the spring frosts, or it may be plunged in the ground for the summer season. Plants in pots are watered frequently in dry weather, kept dry all winter and then repotted in spring.
