Bulbous species from South Africa with bundles of tubular red-orange flowers in spring, and strap-shaped leaves. It appears that in their natural habitats they can be both epiphytic (growing from other plants, or in rock crevices) or grow at ground level in meadows. It is known and named for its ability to survive and quickly regrow after wildfires.
We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it
hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet.
