One of the easiest of the Cyrtanthus species. An excellent container plant which multiplies rapidly by offsets so that a large specimen can have many stems in flower at the same time. My plants flower for much of the year and the fiery orange blooms are especially welcome in winter. Very easily grown from seed which sometimes sets without artificial pollination.

South African bulb has charming bright pumpkin-orange flowers in late spring to early summer, sometimes longer. Good for part shade to mostly sun with moderate to low water. Increases by bulb division, but has never been a pest in my garden and is always welcome.
