Belated Eucomis posting

Hi Paul and Dave,
                               For your interest there are a number of
images of Eucomis in the ABA images gallery. Several forms of E. autumnalis
are there as well as E. zambesiaca. Does this help?…

Eucomis zambesaica tends to offset profusely for me, whereas E. autumnalis
generally does not. I do not grow Eucomis autumnalis 'Dwarf White'. Does
this one offset at all Dave?

Kind regards,
