Sparkling Burgundy



Description

This stunning variety produces rosettes of long burgundy leaves that mature to olive, then turn back after flowering; spikes of attractive creamy-pink flowers with lavender tones rise up in late spring; lift in colder climates, mulch in milder ones. Sparkling Burgundy Pineapple Lily features bold spikes of lightly-scented pink star-shaped flowers with creamy white overtones and lavender streaks from late spring to early summer. Its sword-like leaves emerge burgundy in spring, turning olive green in color. The foliage often turns burgundy in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The dark red stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.
