Description Shipping Notes Fine Print
 
Haemanthus coccineus, known as the blood flower, blood lily or paintbrush lily, is a southern African bulb with dramatic orange-red flowers with broad petals and copious red stamens that look like shaving cream brushes and bloom in colonies of hundreds in their native habitats in late summer and fall. The lush, strap- or tongue-like leaves emerge soon after as the translucent violet fruit develop. Keep on the dry side when dormant in summer perhaps watering only once a month. Plant the bulb just below the surface or slightly exposed. 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. Tolerant of cool temperatures but do not expose to frost or freezing. Our nursery-grown bulbs are adult blooming size.
