Origin: Africa
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Quite superb bulbous plant with large, wavy-margined, deep green leaves than can be up to 18" long and 6" wide, and bearing spectacular, dense, globular shaped heads, 10"

across, of scores of starry, scarlet flowers. The blood lily rises from a flattened bulb about the size and shape of a hockey puck. The bulb, its outer scales spotted with red, is responsible for the common name - the flecks reminded an imaginative botanist of blood. The flowering stalk's speed of growth is not unlike that of the amaryllis, to which the blood lily is related. Scadoxus multiflorus subsp. katherinae is very robust, clump-forming bulb with up to 200 red flowers from spring to summer.

This is one of the most fascinating plants that I have ever come across. In Sudan, this plant grows in nature, mainly in valleys and mountains, with little or no attention from ornamental plants fans. I have just started making my scadoxus collections. The best time to collect the bulbs is the start of the rainy season in July, when the plant awakens from dormancy. Unfortunately, however, two major scadoxus multiflorus habitat regions, are severely affected by conflicts between rebel movements and the government.
