This flower grows in the front yard of my sisters house in the Philippines. It is a beautiful flower but my sister doesn´t know the name of this flower. She asked me about it because she thought I know a lot. I told her I have no idea and this was the first time I have seen a photo of this flower. But then, I told her, "don´t worry. I ask my fellow bloggers." Do you know this plant? Do you have this in your garden? Thanks in advance.

@hereandthere think she bought it in the open air market and the seller didn't know the name either.

Yes, they look similar @ElusiveButterfly but the leaves are different. The photo above is Scadoxus multiflorus or Blood Lily

@thelme55 must be in the same family though. A distant cousin perhaps. LOL

I think that is blood lily. We had that before in our backyard and it had a bulb, like an onion and sprouts when it rains. Sometimes, flowers come out instead of the leaves.

@brokenbee wow! I could write an article about this plant already in my other writing site but I have to plant this blood lily first when I go home to Pinas. My sister has bulbs from this flower to share with me. I can't wait to dig my hands again in my tropical garden.

@thelme55 that's nice! It's just sad that the flowers only last for a few days and they only bloom once a year. I just don't know if you can let it bloom more than once if you water it regularly.

@LadyDuck yes, it is. I have some poisonous flowers in my garden and told my family and their kids to not to eat the leaves or so. At least they know when I told them and they didn't even know it when my late mother planted some of those plants.

@thelme55 I just realized that is has been classified differently now. Haemanthus Multiflorus is the old name while Scadoxus multiflorus is the current name.. phew so many names for the same plant?

It's a type of Amaryllis. Although pretty, it contains toxins.
