Haemanthus pauculifolius is recognized by its striking red, tube-shaped flowers that blossom in the autumn. This perennial plant boasts an underground bulb, providing it with the energy it needs to return year after year.
Native to South Africa, Haemanthus pauculifolius belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family. It stands at a modest height of 6-8 inches (15-20 cm), with flowers reaching up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) in length. Its slender, elongated leaves measure around 12–16 inches (30–40 cm) in length and 0.3-0.8 inches (1–2 cm) in width. These glossy green leaves, 1 to 3 per bulb, emerge after its white flowers with yellow tips blooms, its main identification feature, and remain active all year long, keeping the plant evergreen.
