Eucomis 'Dark Star' is a Terra Nova hybrid involving the dwarf Eucomis zambesiaca and Eucomis vandermerwei. The result is one of the most amazing dwarf pineapple lilies that we've ever seen. Eucomis 'Dark Star' is aptly named as it truly resembles dwarf purple stars in the garden. The tiny 10" tall x 14" wide clump of narrow, dark purple, fleshy leaves splay out at ground level and are topped with a short 10" spike of pinkish pineapple-like flowers in midsummer...sooo cool!
