This is the giant amongst the Natal Cyrtanthus species. No matter which angle the plant is grown at, the flower stem will turn 180° at the point just before where the flower truss emerges. The flowers range from orange to red and are often tipped with a paler hue.
Most of the bulb needs to be left exposed above the ground. It needs plenty of well-draining water in spring and summer and should be allowed to almost dry out in winter. It can tolerate heavy frost and light coverings of snow but will do best in a sheltered position. It will need a 150-300mm pot in order to achieve the best results.
