Scadoxus(Haemanthus) multiflorus, blood lily

It seems like an alien plant to first timers who see it and they look like corals transferred to land. This plant is native to Africa and belongs to the Amaryllis family.

Our specimen plant has late stage bloom flowers. I can see the green seeds forming already.
