Brook asked: " And what about E. zambesiaca?"

I grew a plant under this name for many years as a pot plant. It was a small
Eucomis, not more than a foot high and with proportionally short leaves. 

It gave no trouble here as a pot plant kept dry during the winter. 

I have no idea whether the plant was true to name, however.

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where the school marm, pot
bellied stove and Latin were not the worst of it; it was those quill pens
which kept cracking.
