Haemanthus albiflos in flower

DSC_4834In a room I seldom look properly as all the plants in it are clivias that don´t need close attention during the winter I suddenly saw that a paintbrush flower – Haemanthus albiflos. I think this plant is closely related to the clivia and it doesn´t look very exciting when it doesn’t flower. It is named elephant’s tongue in swedish and the leaves are rather thick and look like a tongue. This plant spent the summer on the terrace and it evidently benefited from this as it is now flowering. Anyhow it is beautiful and give me joy.
