Description
comosa (punctata) - variable, dense spike of green, purple and white, sweetly scented flowers that butterflies adore; bloom a bit later than others; 18"-24"; whz 7-10; 1778; 18+cm bulbs.

This amazingly easy and satisfying, critter resistant, South African native has a conical flower head filled with fragrant florets and sports a peacock tuft of green leaves, resembling a pineapple. It's so eye-catching in our garden but is also a striking centerpiece in containers on the patio. Loves to be in full sun and doesn't mind partial shade in regular, well-drained garden soil; its name translates to 'beautifullly headed' which it really is! 3-5 per sq. ft.

Our pollinators are so important to the sustainability of our gardens and food crops for insect and birds and if each of us participates in healthy gardening practices and chooses some of the pollinator attracting plants, we can collectively make a HUGE difference.
