The leaves are reminiscent of a lily, and the flowerhead can reach up to 1.52 m (5.0 ft) in height.
They originate from the Cape Province of South Africa, and has been introduced into many parts of the world, such as North America, Australia, New Zealand, Patagonia and Europe as a garden plant.

It's my contribution to this Monday Red #colorchallenge initiated by @kalemandra.
