  1. I love that flower. Mine bloom in the spring.

  2. Christina says:

    I remember this; it’s wonderful. Did you grow it from seed?

  3. Peter Herpst says:

    Gorgeous! I’ve grown Scadoxus puniceus which blooms in the spring but this is even more beautiful. S puniceus is hardy in the ground here (similar climate to yours) but I don’t know about S. multiflorus.

      It is lovely, isn’t it? It sparkles when the sun shines on it. No, S. multiflorus is not hardy, I grow it in the greenhouse. I haven’t seen S. puniceus, I will look out for it.

    This is very pretty. The other comments have answered my questions – so I shall pop over to look at Riverside bulbs to see what else they have too

  5. Kris P says:

    It’s wonderful. Many bulbs from South Africa grow well here but this is one I’ve seen only in blog posts, generally in the UK and the Pacific Northwest.

    I’ve never seen this before. It’s a real talking point I imagine, a show stopper!

  7. I need one of those! They call them Blood LIly here and they will grow outside in my garden.

  8. Good subject for a Wordless Wednesday. The color and form are sure dramatic, aren’t they?!

  9. Cathy says:

    Just luscious and new to me – thanks – and for all the comments that drew out answers to my questions!

  10. Beth says:

    What an interesting plant. I had no idea this even existed — thanks for sharing yours with us! Best, -Beth

  11. Intriguing plant. I like it. (Also, don’t you mean soccer?)
