Plant Summary

Haemanthus albiflos, commonly known as the paintbrush, is a versatile flowering plant featuring oblong leaves. Shade-loving with a prolonged flowering season, from April to July, it produces compact umbels of small white flowers resembling a paintbrush and attracting bees and butterflies. Used in traditional medicine to treat coughs and as a charm to ward off lightning. To care for the paintbrush plant, replant bulbs promptly, use well-drained soil, and provide dappled to partial sunlight.
