Red berries

These are the Blood lilies or Fireball lilies,Scandoxus multiflorus katherinae which finished blooming in June. Now their red berries are on the plants. Can you guess which ?
These are red berries from an ornamental plant which has become a weed in the garden. Birds and the insects don' seem to fancy these berries.

Did you guess? Yes, these are the fruit of the blood lilies.

These look like something from another planet, don't they? They are the red berries of the Bird's nest Anthurium.You can see the big leaves behind.


  1. The berries look tempting! Such a lovely shade of red. But the Bird's Nest Anthurium looks spectacular! I haven't seen the plant, only the fern. I'll be on the lookout for this one.

  2. Kanak, if you ever come to Bangalore, I'd be happy to give you the plant.

  3. Cool and those fireballs are really exceptional.
