Eucomis ‘Glow Sticks’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


Glowing, sword-like foliage changes from coppery-gold in the spring to a burnished green-gold in the summer. The ruffled foliage is upright and not floppy like some cultivars. A true breakthrough in color that surprises our visitors. Creamy-white flowers on a pineapple-like spike complement the golden foliage. A simple and elegant beauty.
