About This Image

pineapple plant growing in the garden, beside front patio (close to the Lily of the Nile). This plant has also overwintered, and has also done well since the dahlias were moved last spring, giving these plants more space. Am not sure what the correct name for this plant is, but it had Pineapple Plant on the pkg when we bought it. I like the darker edging around the leaves and the florets of the blooms, as well as the speckled stems.

Hi Beverly, thankyou. It is an interesting plant and I enjoy looking at it each time am out on patio. Noticed today when watering the plants, that a 3rd one of these has just appeared, so it does seem to be multiplying :)

thankyou Tam and Jas for the nice comments. I hope your plant does turn out to be the same as this. Am esp pleased that it overwintered outside! Am hoping it migh multiply. The purple edging around leaves and florets really add to the pleasure of it, as you say. You can see this dark edging moreso in the larger image.

This is very pretty. We were given a plant, which, we believe is a Pineapple plant. It hasn't flowered as yet though. If it is like this one, I will be delighted! I just love the delicate flowers and the hints of purple on the flowers add to the delicacy. :)

Hi Ann, thanks very much, am glad you like it. I like the "etching" around the leaves and on the flowers.

What an interesting and beautifully plant you have captured, Alandra. The colors are so nicely photographed. Shows so well with the darker background.
