Let me second that. I visited the garden today, and if you live in the area
it's worth a detour just to see those flowers.  Photos don't really do
justice to B. marginata.  It's the brightest shade of scarlet I could
imagine, with the same sparkly "diamond dust" effect that you get on Nerines
-- but a much bigger flower head.  I can't imagine what a field full of
those things in South Africa would look like.

Now if only mine would bloom.  Any decade now...
