Cyrtanthus sp?  This has been passed around the Pacific Bulb Society BX as offsets that the donor originally got from John Lavanos. It has never bloomed for the donor but it is blooming for me today. As a large pink bloom.
Does anyone know the identify?

I think it is a large Habranthus that got mixed in?

This may be way out of sequence.

Haemanthus humilis. Was safely tucked away in the cool basement and I notice growth.  Put it outside and flowered it's head off.

Nothing "humble" about that Haemanthus, Arnold!
Quite a beauty.
Gladiolus dalenii flowers late in the season so is at the mercy of the frosts - these have escaped so far!
cheers

Fermi:

thanks, my G. daleni always comes into growth at the wrong time and withers and never flowers.
