A very good looking shapely flower, Rwanda Croscomia Lucifer is one of the notable blooms that stand out in the middle of the African savannah. It is native to East Africa and can be found from Sudan to Rwanda. The plant grows in clumps where bulbs support horizontal stems that bear many flowers. In appearance, the flower looks delicate in its vibrant red color in its fashionably segmented inflorescence. A stem which grows vertically is decorated by simple buds upon which paired flowers in a trumpet design sprout. Each stalk can have between 4 and 20 such red or orange blooms. The entire plant can reach a meter in height while the horizontal corm sprouts can reach 0.5 meters. The uses of the flower other than decoration include the making of a yellow-colored dye that smells like saffron.
