Eucomis bicolor (Pineapple Lily), Isles of Scilly, Tresco

Species category: 



Site gen!

Growing by the entrance to the Swarovski Hide at the Great Pool. Make sure you tick off the small spiders with the diamond-shaped dark patch on the abdomen inside the hide itself...Arachnia verculata at it's only British site (I believe).

(technically I'm sure the spiders are abundant in nearby vegetation too, maybe around a few house window frames too, but they're a dead cert from within the hide!)
