Summer beauty - MS120511 -32 .: Football lily. Haemanthus multiflorus, Amaryllidaceae.    
With its numerous scarlet flowers grouped in a large round umbel on top of 30 cm long stalk, Haemanthus multiflorus is a novelty.
The plant comes from tropical Africa and flowers in summer, when it is normally leafless. The arrival of the flowers every year will be a welcome surprise as they appear when the plants have completely "disappeared". They were in full bloom in Mysore last week.  However the photographs attached were taken in Chennai a few years
back. 
Yes .., often planted in pots in Delhi.

Scadoxus multiflorus: Football Lily (as called by Nurserymen)
Scadoxus multiflorus ?? 

Yes it is!!! I am very sure this plant is Scadoxus multiflorus also known as Haemanthus multiflorus, I have this plant with me in my garden and also I did cytological studies (mitosis) from the root tips of this plant in my
college. It is commonly called Blood lily out there people call it as Red Ball Lily
Let me know at what time we should collect its root tips to get maximum dividing cells 
In Haemanthus multiflorus pluck the root tip around 11:00 -11:30 A.M, but make one thing for sure that the soil in which it is growing should be wet (optimum drenched) otherwise you will never get good divisions. Water the plant well for at least 3-4 days before to take the root tips. If you want you can give me a call now.
Some more Pics from Arya PG College Campus

Another Scadoxus multiflorus photograph. To the left of the flowerhead, a leaf can be seen. This photograph was taken in Adyar Theosophical Society Gardens on 21 June, 2011. It is a cultivated garden plant.

Ball lilies:  Could I have your opinions on the Ball Lily which is flowering now with the rains? Any good hi res pictures to share too? I will give photo credits. This is for a story in the Hindu,.

Please identify this plant for me. Taken in Bhadra forest, 2005. Is this a medicinal plant? Any information would be highly appreciated.
Scadoxus multiflorus (Martyn) Raf.
Thanks ... The football lilly is possibly an escapee from some garden. Understands that it is used in some ethnic medicines; but beware it is highly poisonous (also known as 'Poison lilly').

Looks like:
Amaryllidaceae Scadoxus multiflorus popularly known as Football Lily, African Blood Lily, Powderpuff Lily
Also known as  Haemanthus multiflorus from the Greek: Blood red
Haemanthus sp?
Perhaps Haemanthus katherinae
Scadoxus multiflorus matches.

Photographed yesterday this is about 2.5 ft ornamental and I am not sure if this has anything to do in this fortnight.
 
I think looking like a Dieffenbachia sp

Thank you Sir. Recorded more photographs today, in another compound. Attachments (3)
Searched a lot but couldn't find any solution. All ornamental Araceae seem to have pinnately veined leaves while this one has parallel/longitudinal nerves.
This is Scadoxus multiflorus, Syn Haemanthus multiflorus.
Commonly known as Football Lily.
Yes ..., It is Haemanthus multiflorus or Football Lily which blooms in April /may in Delhi.
Thanks a lot, it looks so!

I thank Aarti Ji for the id of this flower. But I have doubt if it is multiflorus or not.
Id is correct. I have written an article on this plant published in Deccan herald (http://www.deccanherald.com/content/250510/blood-lily-vishakanye-medicinal-properties.html)
and The New Indian Express (Chennai edition several years ago)
Thank you Sir, it is Scadoxus multiflorus (Martyn) Raf.
