Scadoxus multiflorus ssp multiflorus is a hardy, deciduous, bulb that has large blade-shaped wavy margined leaves. The stem and the scape are often covered with reddish brown to dark violet spots. It bears magnificent, large heads of orangey-red flowers early in spring. They are followed by very decorative, red berries that are relished by birds.
Scadoxus multiflorus ssp multiflorus is an excellent garden and container plant. Plant in well-drained soil in semi-shade and do not overwater.
