Haemanthus coccineus

I've always wanted one of these as I have several H. albiflos in my garden
and they do very well.  I assumed this would be just as easy to care for, but I happened to encounter an "expert" in SA bulbs at the sale and he said this species is a little more difficult to grow.  Luckily, I got a few pointers!


  1. Nice find. The flowers are so pretty. Be sure to post a picture of when it blooms.
