Can you name this plant? Its Haemanthus

This autumn flowering bulb has very large leaves

The above are two species of the same genus

Have a go and please leave a comment

Thanks for the comments

Haemanthus albiflos is the white one. I've read about the red one but never seen it in flower. Have you had any luck with it setting seed?

I do not know what it is, but it is very beautiful.

Hello Patrick. I have not had any success with seed on H albiflos. However H. coccineus is known to set seed in NZ and one of mine is from a friends seedling plants.
