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.


TERRA NOVA® 'Zulu Flame' has darker purple leaves than Eucomis 'Oakhurst' with a much improved habit. The broader, thicker foliage never flops and the flowers are darker on shorter stalks. TERRA NOVA® 'Zulu Flame' will add a tropical touch without any fuss. Hardy to at least zone 6, this vigorous, cold tolerant gem should find its way into a featured garden spot or a special pot from coast to coast.
