I bought a bulb labeled Haemanthus cinnabarinus at the U.C. Berkeley
Fall or Holiday plant sale last year. Accession number 90.1638. The
IBS Bulb Gallery shows a picture of Scadoxus cinnabarinus, which looks
to be the same plant. One look at the one I bought told me that it is
a lot more closely related to the group of plants currently placed in
Scadoxus than it is Haemanthus.

A Google.com search for Scadoxus cinnabarinus should turn up a few
pictures elsewhere.

Hope this helps.
