Scadoxus multiflorus katherinae

Blood Lily
Amaryllidacaceae
Bulbs and bulblike plants, Perennials

Large (4-in.-diameter) white bulb stained red (hence common name). Lanceshaped to ovate, bright green, wavy-edged leaves are 12 to 15 in. long. In late spring or summer, ball-shaped clusters (to 9 in. wide) of narrow-petaled, salmon-colored flowers are borne atop thick flower stems 1 to 2 ft. tall. Many threadlike, bright red stamens protrude from each bloom, giving clusters the look of spherical bottlebrushes.
