Brunsvigia josephinae

Brunsvigia josephinae (Josephine's Candelabra Flower) - A large bulb - It produces the largest bulbs of any plant, sometimes exceeding 2' in length. In fall are produced the flowers on thick stalks to 18-23 inches tall bearing a full head, often more than 25, of coral-red flowers, each about 2 1/2 inches across. After the blooms fade the pedicels elongate with the ripening seeds, the leaves emerge. Eventually the large gray-green leaves can be 3-4 inches in width by 2-3 feet long. Native to the Eastern Cape Providence and introduced into cultivation in 1814. Plant in full sun to half shade and protect from frost. Irrigate well during the growing season from fall to spring and allow a rest period w/o irrigation during the summer. If plants are dug it is important to remove entire bulb as root attachment area should not be broken. Plants usually will not bloom the first or second year after bulbs are dug. Can be grown in large containers. Information is from San Marcos Growers in Santa Barbara
