Pineapple Flower (Eucomis autumnalis)

This is an interesting plant that I hadn't noticed until a few days ago.  A lot of people will bring plants to the greenhouses for the winter and I think this may be one of the 'vacationers'.  These plants only grow to a height of 60cm to the top of the flower spike.  They are an easy to grow bulb and the flowers last a long time if cut for arrangements.  Unfortunately their not hardy in my zone.  For anyone that lives in zone 9 these would look great along a border and I'm really jealous!
