South African evergreen bulb with exotic foliage and white bottlebrush inflorescences. It is widespread in South Africa and it is found in different coditions. Haemathus albiflos thrives in mediterranean conditions, slow but steady. Plants like to become pot bound and mature bulbs flower reliably every year. It enjoys shade or mild morning or winter sun- It does well as a house plant, watered sparingly all-year long, much like sansevierias.
This is the form found in East London, very close to the sandy beach, in the sea-facing scrub on rocky soil. It is one of the most attractive form that we have seen, with large, rounded-channeled leaves, very velvety, with especially attractive white, furry leaf-margins

Haemathus albiflos is used in traditional medicine to treat chronic coughs. It is also active against viral infections as shown in this Study of antiviral action of total alkaloids from Haemanthus albiflos.
