Haemanthus albiflos


Haemanthus albiflos

Family: Amaryllidaceae

Common names: white paint brush, witpoeierkwas

Hardy, evergreen, shade-loving bulbous plant with broad leaves and white paintbrush flowers in winter to spring. This plant has attractive foliage and flowers well in shade. The decorative, orange-red berries attract birds to the garden. A good shade plant that also makes a wonderful container plant for shady areas. Plant in well drained, compost-rich soil.

Sowing instructions: Sow seeds in deep seed trays as soon as possible after harvesting in a very well-drained, sandy medium to which some fine compost is added. Press lightly into the soil, so that the top of the seed remains visible. Water well once and then again only after the first leaves appear. After that, water well once every two to three weeks.

Locality: George. Harvest: August 2023
