This dwarf pineapple lily has it all – a vigorously clumping habit, spotted leaves, wavy margins, and attractive rose red flowers. A much larger plant than E. vandermerwei. A dramatic breakthrough for those that want to have something different, yet easy to grow! A wonderful container plant or use in front of the border and in mixed beds.
