Subspecie Katharinae: (Blood Lily or Christmas Lily)
The spectacular flowers range from scarlet to peach-rose. It needs a shady, fertile and damp site, can even grow in very deep shade.
Scadoxus resent being lifted and will not flower for one or more seasons thereafter but they are so different, so striking that they are well worth waiting for!
Once planted, they should not be disturbed for many years. They need rich, well-composted, friable soil with excellent drainage.
