Can you tell me anything about the Scadoxus membranaceus, such as when it 
blooms?  Mine were received in 2000 as what I thought were good sized 
plants.  So far none have bloomed.

Mine are evergreen, in the same cool greenhouse on the same bench where S. 
multiflorus katherinae is deciduous for 2 or 3 months each winter.

I had my first S. puniceus bloom in that same greenhouse this past 
spring.  The puniceus and the katherinae were all grown from seed.

I too would like very much to add S. cinnebarinus and S. pole-evansi to my 
Scadoxus collection!  If any seeds or plants turn up at future UC plant 
sales, I beg you noble Californians to keep me in mind!
