About 20 species make up these members of the Amaryllidaceae family that are commonly called 'candelabra lilies'. They are fairly wide spread across the Winter rainfall areas of South Africa. They flower during the Autumn after a dry Summer rest, then produce their foliage in the Winter similar to a Belladonna on steroids.
They require a sunny, well drained situation to flourish. Allow enough room on the larger species for the spread of the flower head and their luscious leaves. The seed head when matured falls and tumbles across the ground dispersing seed in their native areas.
Isn't Mother Nature grand!
