This Haemanthus pubescens flowered earlier this year. The colour is spectacular. The diameter of the pot at the top is 23cm.

This is what the bulb looks like with its scales. The scales can be pulled off and planted to form a new bulb.

This is what the leaves look like

Here is what the seeds look like when they are mature to harvest.

Arif,
As long as the members are enjoying my plants and photos I will keep them coming for you. I will not be offended if anyone tells me that I do not need to post anymore photos.

The Iceberg has come out the water some more already but you will have to wait and see how much is under water still.
Regards
Heinie
