Eucomis comosa, the Pineapple Flower or Pineapple Lily, is a species of flowering plant in the asparagus family Asparagaceae. A deciduous bulbous perennial used as an ornamental plant, it is endemic to South Africa. The flowers appear in summer and are arranged in a spike (raceme), topped by a "head" of green leaflike bracts. The species was first described by Dutch naturalist Martinus Houttuyn (1720-1798) in 1780, as Asphodelus comosus. The specific epithet comosus (shared by the pineapple, Ananas comosus) means "tufted".

Seen and photographed at San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park.

On any given day, dozens of volunteers at the San Francisco Botanical Garden are digging gloved fingers into soil, pulling pesky weeds and laying freshly mulched soil over a layer of cardboard to keep weeds at bay.

Roughly 600 people volunteer at the 55-acre garden each year, half of them regularly winding their way through more than 8,500 different kinds of plants from around the world, tidying up vegetation and growing a green thumb in the process.
