Eucomis 'Freckles' is a 2010 Terra Nova release, developed from a cross of Eucomis 'Leia' (E. zambesiaca x E. vandermerwei) backcrossed with Eucomis vandermerwei. In appearance, Eucomis 'Freckles' appears to be a larger, more vigorous Eucomis vandermerwei. The 10" tall x 14" wide clump is composed of very dark green leaves, heavily speckled purple. In July, the clumps are topped with short, 10" tall spikes of dark purple flowers. Eucomis 'Freckles' makes a great specimen plant and also looks great in a mass planting.
