Grisly name aside, this South African native is actually quite the beauty. You'll find many ways to feature its unique bloom, whether it's spicing up your cut-flower bouquets, a patio accent, a container garden feature or a statement-making houseplant. The flowers form a ball shape, like an allium, but with vibrant red color on the hundreds of tiny florets. It's tropical, so for most zones you'll want to keep it potted. If you garden where it stays nice and warm, feel free to group it in your borders for a pop of color. Deer and rabbits tend not to bother with Blood Lily. Scadoxus multiflorus
