African Blood Lily (Haemanthus)

Haemanthus Bulbs | Scadoxus | African Blood Lily
If ever there was a plant deserving of a more attractive name, this is it. Scadoxus, commonly known as a pincushion flower because of its obvious similarity to this indispensable sewing aid, is a South African native. Its globe shaped flowers are comprised of hundreds of individual sparkly florets, each accented with gold tipped stamen. Plants bloom over a two month period, adding both color and unusual form to gardens or containers. Attractive foliage is basal and wavy. New lower price this season.
