About Ananas comosus

The Pineapple plant is a perennial herb that stands between 2 to 4 feet tall and spreads out to about 3 to 5 feet wide. Its leaves are a stunning mix of pewter and emerald, with hints of crimson. When it flowers, it produces striking lilac and garnet blooms, which eventually give way to its iconic fruit. The fruit itself is a feast for the eyes, with colors ranging from umber to lemon and lime.
