ORANGE RED Oxblood Rhodophiala bifida ssp. granatiflora Hybrids
I dug these up during bloom to make sure I got the largest flowered orange - red bulbs out of a large patch of seedlings.  These have larger flowers than the Hill Country Red strain from Texas, although the bulbs are about the same size.  Frequently they produce two flower stems per bulb.  Subspecies granatiflora originated from an acid clay area, as opposed to alkalai clay like most R. bifida.....not that I have ever heard complains about soil from either. 

Our hybrid Rhodophiala are the great great grand-children of the Texas heirloom (hill country red), pink seed strains, and R. granatiflora, crossed and selected for at multiple generations by Bill the Bulb Baron in California for improved size and unique color.  Keep an eye out as we have some really nice selections we could put up for sale in the future.

Oxblood Lilies were introduced to Texas in the late 1800's.  Expect stunning displays of flowers in late summer and early fall, followed by winter foliage.  Originally from Argentina, this Amaryllis relative is well suited to harsh conditions.  Alternating heat, drought, rain, and cold are no problem.  This proven heirloom bulb has multiplied and been passed around central Texas for well over a century.  They will be at home anywhere in the Southern US, zones 7-10.

The bulbs will vary somewhat in size but most are very large at about 1.5 inches across.
