This Scadoxus produces one of the showiest inflorescence of all the South African flora: a large sphere of red flowers held on a long stalk , often compared to fireworks! Luckily, it is rather fast and easy to grow , especially in Mediterranean conditions. It is mostly evergreen, but it is especially active in Summer, while in winter it sets back and can also loose all leaves for a short while. Flowers show up at the end of summer, which in our hemisphere can happen from mid august to the end of september, depending on where you are.

These bulbs are now about three years old, sown from seeds in 2019.
