South African and Australian Natives

Haemanthus carneus bloom size bulb

Extremely rare species with loose clusters of clear pink flowers.  The leaves appear after blooming and are dark green and held flat against the soil.

(Amaryllidaceae)   This bulb will ship when dormant from spring through late summer.  If you place an order with other plants, it will ship separately.


Light: Part shade is best, so place near a shrub or fine-textured shade tree.  Also does well in a pot indoors with bright, indirect light.

Water: Moderate to heavy requirements provided that the soil is sharply draining.

Soil: Sharply draining, but high in organic matter.

Fertilizer: Relatively heavy feeder, so a slow-release fertilizer is appreciated.  I use a peat-based potting mix with a generous helping of extra pummice added.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 10
