From New Zealand eucomis breeder, Eddie Welsh, comes a new pineapple lily hybrid that was bred for the cut flower trade. The fleshy green-leaved rosettes are topped in August with 18" tall spikes of dark purple buds that open to cranberry-pink flowers...very attractive. Eucomis 'Reuben' (Hebrew for "first born") is named after both Eddie's son and his dog...no relation to Paul Reubens who also had a pink head.
