It is a very variable plant. The oblong leaves vary in color from pale to dark green or greyish-green and are usually smooth and sometimes shiny. The flower head is compact, and consists of numerous erect, narrow white flowers, enclosed by several broad, greenish-white bracts. The erect stamens protrude conspicuously beyond the tips of the flowers and their anthers turn bright yellow or orange when ripe. Unlike other Haemanthus species, these bulbs are almost evergreen, quite often retaining their leaves throughout the season.
