Antigoni, it could be an unusually hairy Haemanthus pubescens.  I'd have to 
see and touch the flower bracts to be sure.  Pubescens usually has some red 
speckles on the underside of the leaf, but not always.  Dasyphyllus usually 
does not have any red spots on the leaves but can have a few at the 
base.  In any case, the hairs on the leaves are terrific!
