I bought seed of this rare Brunsvigia in 2002, and was very excited to see a bud emerging three weeks ago. It had never bloomed before, and waiting 14 years for a Brunsvigia to mature is not at all unusual. The scape emerged deep crimson, and the flowering umbel has two paddle shaped crimson bracts that are unusual. The flowering umbel is very dainty, measuring about 20cm across, each flower is sort of bicolored, as you can see in the picture. I won't be getting any seed, since I would need two bulbs to cross pollinate them and I haven't seen seed offered since I purchased the seed fourteen years ago.
My B. marginata, are, however, sending up four buds, so I will be getting seed from them and posting a picture when they fully open.
