This tropical looking bulbous plant boasts 18" long x 2" wide, amaryllis-like fleshy leaves. The easy-to-grow clumps are topped in August with dramatic 20" tall, flesh-colored flowers resembling small pineapples on totem poles. I haven't tried them in mixed drinks yet, but there is great potential! Regardless, do not try this at home. A mass of pineapple lilies in the garden will create a guaranteed photo op.
