Scadoxus is often thought to be from the Allium family but it is not Best grown indoors in containers that are only about 4cms larger than the circumference of the bulbs. Plant with the nose of the bulb just showing above the soil surface. After flowering the leaves stay for many months and are also in themselves very attractive.
