A dense cluster of white flowers borne atop a short hairy stem and large, fleshy grey leaves make Haemanthus deformis one of South Africa 's most extraordinary bulbous plants. Although poorly known in cultivation, its preference for shade and ease of culture make it an invaluable subject for the gardener and specialist bulb-grower alike. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal.
