A thin strappy Haemanthus...... very different to anything I have seen before. I note just how variable even my "basic" H. coccineus are, with some having long leaves about 4 inches wide and up to nearly 2 foot long, while the plant next to it has leaves half the length and 1.5x the width. It makes for fascinating viewing to the unitiated as I have them right outside my front door and visitors often ask what they are. I have also planted a couple of different ones together in a clump in the ground..... this definitely affects the leaf growth as the leaves have become a little more "chunky" for them. Also interesting to note that a couple of the ones I have in that clump (they came from a different source to any of my others) have a distinct blue tinge to the leaves, particularly noticeable when first shooting. Now the idea of a Haemanthus that has thin undulating leaves is just weird <grin>, but GOOD!! <big grin> I personally would love to see a picture of the leaves as well when you have one. Always great to learn about new species. Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Growing....
