Being an enabler again. Even though it's not hardy here, I just had to share this with you all. Worth growing as a houseplant in my opinion.

I just came back from South Africa and I saw this plant growing and in bloom at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and other places and it is just stunning in person. Flower structure is similar to a Kniphofia and a lovely shade of pink with remarkable wavy-edged foliage, total eye-candy.
