Scadoxus multiflorus ssp. katherinae

Griffiths Index of Garden Plants gives the common name "Royal Paint Brush"
to S. Puniceus.  Maybe this is what the guide was referring to.  Sorry you
didn't have a better guide - most of them are excellent.

"Come to think of it, I saw many Scadoxus multifloras ssp? blooming in  


shade at Lotusland in Santa Barbara, CA in early July. They were  

larger in

all respects (inflorescence, scape, and leaves) than the one I grow in a

pot. I didn't see a tag, and the guide said that they were "some kind of

paint brush. They look like they come from Mars."




Yes, S.m. katherina are somewhat larger and more open.
