Name of plant

Claire Hutton asked 13 years ago

Hello Gerry,A couple of friends of mine and myself would like to know the name of this plant. We have looked in lots of books and at pictures but we can’t agree on anything. I’ve attached a picture of it. Thanks for the advice on the cherries earlier in the year,at least I know it is not some serious disease causing the fruit to drop. We had some fruit this year, lets hope the pollination goes better next year. Thanks Claire

This is the pineapple lily, Eucomis bicolor, native to South Africa, hardy or close to hardy, and liking rich soil that does not dry out in summer.
