As you might guess from the name, the leaves of 'Innocence' are not boldly stained in bronze or purple like many horticultural selections of Eucomis comosa. Instead, they are green with occasional purple streaking and stippling visible on the reverses of their upright leaves. The two-foot strap leaves are especially broad measuring more than 3 inches across. Bold upright flower stems rise to 28 inches and are slightly bronzed and stippled. Pineapple-shaped inflorescence are just short of a foot in length. Individual flowers are waxy white with pink eyes that give the flowers a blush of pink. Eucomis bring the exotic to the garden at a time of year when many perennials are flagging.
