Begoinia semperflorens-cultorum, fibrous begonias, are readily available, 
inexpensive, and easy.

Subject: [pbs] Overplanting Eucomis

Hi Everybody,
I’m brand new to PBS, so I hope you’ll humor me a bit.  I did try a search, and 
saw a reference to the begonia grandis, but I think it’s too early a bloomer for 
what I need.  I have a number of Eucomis Comosa in the ground, and they’re 
reliable bloomers, and hardly any trouble.  However, right around this time of 
year, the foliage gets pretty ratty looking.  As they’re in a prominent spot in 
my yard, I’d like some type of other bulb, or even just a perennial that I could 
over plant them with, and hide the dying foliage.  I realize that it would have 
been better if I asked this question a few months ago, but I only just joined. 
So hindsight will have to be the best sight, and I’ll have a good jump on next
