Haemanthus amarylloides ssp. polyanthus is a beautiful pink-flowered species with red stems that blooms from late summer to fall with its upright or flattened, strap-like leaves growing from fall through winter into spring. The pale pink berries are attactive. Keep on the dry side when dormant in summer perhaps watering only once a month. 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 5 years old and are a few years away from reaching adult blooming size.
