Brunsvigia josephinae, commonly called Josephine's lily or candelabra lily, is a deciduous, subtropical species of Brunsvigia originating from South Africa.[ It is marked by deep pink to red flower heads which are about 12 to 15 inches long. It shoots up from bulbs in March and April, and the leaves develop later. These bulbs can take 12 years to settle before they flower, but they flower annually once established.

B. josephinae is about 1 m tall when flowering. Its bulbs are some 200 mm in diameter and usually exposed. Leaves appear only in winter; they are blueish grey and typically range from 8-20 leaves per plant. Dark red, tubular flowers appear in late summer to autumn; they are 15 mm long atop stalks approximately 650 mm long, with 30-40 flowers per plant. Plants may take as long as 14 years to mature from seeds.

The lily was named for Joséphine de Beauharnais, Napolean's empress.

We supply 8 to 9 yr old bulbs, that will start to flower at 12 years old.
