Eucomis ‘Glow Sticks’
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.
