Haemanthus Bulbs | Scadoxus | African Blood Lily
Always a customer favorite, despite its unfortunate name, Scadoxus, commonly known as a pincushion flower because of its obvious similarity to this indispensable sewing aid, is native to South Africa. Its globe shaped flowers are comprised of hundreds of individual and sparkly florets, each accented with gold tipped stamen. Plants bloom over a two month period, adding both long-lasting color and unusual form to gardens or containers. Attractive foliage is basal and wavy.
