….the landscape is transformed over night from brown parched earth to lush greens and reds…..
…these beauties seem to just need to smell the rain and their heads pop out of the dry earth….
can you tell me the name of that orange flower. i think that is what i have. it is a bulb that multiplies each year and is magnificent when it blooms. one bulb was given to me years ago but i do not remember the name of it.
Hi Deanna I think the plant you are referring to is called a "clivia" which is a bulb which multiplies. I am not sure what the plant in the picture is called. I have not seen them before coming here to Sierra Leone. They are just amazing; during the dry season we were watering the bed where they were planted (just a single bulb. we planted five and only five have come up) from the plastic water tank to the right of our house. In all those months not a sign of them....but just after the first heavy rainfall....they made an appearance...
thanks for your reply. i looked up clivia but it does not look like my plant. i was going to send you a picture but did not have your e-mail address.
