Haemanthus is an unusual flowering bulb well known for their compact, brush-like flower heads. Individual species may be summer-growing, winter-growing or evergreen. Usually, the flowers are produced before the leaves, except in the evergreen species where leaves are present during the blooming period. The flowers can be either white, pink or red. The leaves alone make this plant worth growing. The oversized, tongue-shaped leaves vary in colour from pale to dark green or greyish-green and are usually smooth and shiny.
Haemanthus prefer a well-drained, frost free position which is lightly shaded, especially in hot climates. Suitable for pots, containers or in the garden. The bulbs don’t enjoy being disturbed.
Different varieties available throughout the year.
