This evergreen plant produces tall stems topped by clusters of brightly colored, trumpet-shaped flowers from summer to fall.
Although the flowers are not as large as those of hippeastrum, to which the plant is related, they are showy.
The leaves are strap-shaped and about 12in/30cm long.
The flower stems rise above the foliage and bear groups of four to eight scarlet, white, or salmon pink flowers.
ORIGIN South Africa.
HEIGHT To 2ft/60cm.
POTTING MIX Soil-based.
REPOTTING In spring set the bulb in a 5-in/ 13-cm pot, half burying it in the soil. Plants flower best when undisturbed, so top-dress annually and repot only every 3 to 4 years.
PROPAGATION Remove offsets in spring or early summer and pot up individually. KEEPING PLANTS The plant needs a rest period in cool conditions in the winter.
- Bright light with some direct sun.
- Normal room temperature in summer, but a cooler period in winter at about 50°F/10°C.
- Water sparingly until growth starts in spring; keep the soil just moist during the growing season.
- Apply a high-potash liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from spring until flowering ceases.
