Mr. Irvin, does that eight feet describe the amount of row space you have
given to this species or does it describe the height of the inflorescence? 

: ) 

Please tell us more about your Eucomis pole-evansii. Are they in the garden?
In pots? Wintered in a greenhouse? 

I have plants of this species which have never bloomed in all the many years
I have grown them. I attribute that to their being grown in pots and

The possibility that I might one day see an eight foot Eucomis makes me
think it's time to reconsider the attention I'm giving to these.
