Eucomis, pineapple lily

Eucomis) This fragrant South African native has tropical-looking, fleshy leaves with flower spikes that appear to be miniature “pineapples” at the top of each stem. (Sorry, not edible.) Hundreds of waxy, one inch starry flowers are perfectly shaped, mostly edged in maroon and begin opening from the bottom up.

It doesn't look edible but is quite impressive. So interesting.
