Eucomis autumnalis 'Naude's Neck' is an unusual form of the South African native pineapple lily, Eucomis autumnalis, that we saw on our 2005 trek near Naude's Neck in the Drakensberg Mountains. Thanks to Silverhill Seeds for making seed available. For us, Eucomis autumnalis 'Naude's Neck' forms a rather flat rosette of 1' long glossy green leaves topped, starting in early July (NC), with dense pineapple-like spikes of bright green flowers. What amazes us most about Eucomis autumnalis 'Naude's Neck' is its compactness, floriferousness, and that the flower stalks remain sturdy and attractive until frost, unlike any other eucomis we've grown.
