Description

Spice things up in your summer garden, conservatory or windowsill with this exotic and unsual character! Scadoxus multiflorus (Haemanthus multiflora), also known as Blood Lily, forms a striking red pompon of frizzy looking spark-like flowers above a lush patch of architectural upright foliage. If you’re into tropical plants or creating that trendy jungle vibe in your planting schemes, this is an absolute must!

The compact banana-like leaves of this African plant make a lovely feature in themselves, and the fiery ball of red flowers during the summer months bring that extra wow factor. This exotic plant is ideal for growing indoors or in a conservatory, but can also be planted outside within a sheltered, partially shady pot or border for the summer. If planting outside, try combining Scadoxus multiflorus with other leafy plants like cannas or dahlias to make your own little tropical hideaway!
