Brunsvigia grandiflora is a large, impressive species with open, Allium-like, spherical inflorescences 16-20 inches wide on stems up to 32 inches high when it blooms in late fall and early winter with its trumpet-shaped light to dark pink flowers and its leaves that appear before flowering in late summer or early fall or at the time of flowering. Unlike other species in the genus the bluish leaves are wavy or even spiraled and held upright rather than flat against the ground. Keep on the dry side when dormant in summer perhaps watering only once a month. Plant the bulb with the neck protruding above the soil. This is a non-hardy bulb that can be grown as a houseplant or in a heated greenhouse or sunroom. It's perfect for those interested in bulbs and houseplants and for succulent lovers looking to branch out. Our nursery-grown bulbs are 5 years old and will reach blooming size at about 7-8 years old.
