The bulb by Bart Wursten.

   This member of the Amaryllidaceae  family was given this name by John Gilbert Baker in 1892. It is found in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland andSouth Africa, growing in a well drained soil like sand or grit with some water and lots of sun. The bulb can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to six centimetres in height. The flowers are from pink to red.

The species named after E.E. Galpin (1858-1941), a botanical collector.

Some claims it is a winter grower.
