My sister bought a mixed planter this spring in the middle of which was a plant with tall green leaves that has just bloomed with a red flower. Neither of us can identify it.

Please help!

Maybe a clivia?

Yes. The flowers have finished and those are going to be seed pods if they were pollinated. If not they'll fall off.

Yes, it must be a clivia. The Google Images page for clivia looks exactly like it.

Thanks a million! You people are amazing!!

I have been growing canna for the last 20 years. I have both the red leaf ones and the green leaf ones. Please listen to what Ken said. Depending upon were you are located, you may have to dig up the bulbs in fall. I started with only a few of these bulbs and now I give to my friends & local greenhouse for them to sell as I am overwhelmed with too many of these bulbs. They are a beautiful plant in my opinion.
