Haemanthus deformis has cool, prostrate, evergreen leaves that are broad and lightly rippled like fat tongues.
Haemanthus deformis is a distinctive South African bulb with cool, prostrate, evergreen leaves that are broad and lightly rippled like fat tongues. The white flowers with copious yellow stamens are held just above the foliage in late autumn and are followed by deep orange fruit. New leaves are usually produced just after flowering. Maintain even moisture throughout the year but with a little less water in the winter. Plant the bulb just below the surface or slightly exposed. This is a non-hardy bulb that can be grown as a houseplant or in a heated greenhouse or sunroom. It's perfect for those interested in bulbs and houseplants and for succulent lovers looking to branch out. Our nursery-grown bulbs are adult blooming size.
