Scadoxus multiflorus

Scadoxus used to be included in the genus Haemanthus. Some common names for these bulbs include Blood Lily, African Blood Lily, Paintbrush Lily, Football Lily, Torch Lily, and Fireball Lily. We have it at our front door where it makes a nice Dutch spring flower bed. I can't grow tulips, but these will do.
