    Below are a couple of pictures of a plant, can you name the plant? Latin or common name will do.

      I will give the answer later, if nobody has a correct id, but the calibre of some members on the forum, I bet someone knows

            That is unusual, never seen it before. Is it hardy? Grow outside during the summer?

              I had one once, struggled to get it to flower again so got rid of it.
              Not sure what I was doing wrong.:scratch:

                  Maybe that's where I was going wrong, I thought it was pretty tender so kept it under glass all year round.

                  Eucomis and mandevilla?
                  Mandevilla has another name as well which escapes me at the moment.

                  Changed my mind, no 2 could be Podranea.

                  Your Eucomis is early into flower. No sign of buds on mine.

                    The Eucomis is correct, but its a dwarf one, the second is pandorea.
                    The Eucomis is early, but have a dark purple one that still resembles a pineapple, the coconut scent on these dwarf ones is really strong, and the pandorea smells like flumps (marshmallow), I see I am going to have to dig deep to challenge you guys.
