Roland - my mistake - what I have is actually Haemanthus deformus.  Fran

Roland - The Haemanthus is not in flower just now - should flower this winter and, if it produces seeds, I'll be sure to send you some.  Not sure what the background plant is - looks like some kind of orchid?  Fran

Last year, Eucomis autumnalis flowered. This year it has produced many offsets but no flowers - maybe it's on "maternity leave" -  ahem.  Fran
