Alberto, I had to do it.... there was a danger to Forumists from trying with paper and scissors to copy this plant... too dangerous for most of them to be allowed sharp objects!!  ;)

Hans, the cinnabar colour is: bright red colour tinted with orange.
This can satisfy you?  :)

When I think of the colour of Rhododendron cinnabarinum it is a also more orange/red than what I have in my mind's eye as cinnarbar.... which is certainly more a cinnabar RED!
Here are two examples....

234765-1.... a lacquer carving on gold

Alberto ,

I'm really familar with this color ( cinnabar ) from my cacti - there is a plant which is called Lobivia cinnabarina - here is a scann from a old book ( Curtis Botanical Magacin 1847 )
This color is really different from your flower color !

Also there exist some pics in the web from this plants :
http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/Scadoxus
http://www.luphen.org.uk/public/2003/2003kewgardens1.htm
http://www.meemelink.com/prints%20pages/12738.Amaryllidacea%20-%20Haemanthus%20cinnabarinus.htm

In the description of this Taxon is written : inflorescence spherical with numerous pink or red flowers

....so it seems you have more the pink clone

Alberto,

I will try my best to get seed. I have some seedling from another try with König Albert, just a few but you can see differences. Some are spotted, some not.

And in the meantime I will try some Origami.

Roland,
nice to meet you here  :)

Hans,
if you ask 10 people: Which colour is this? Be sure, you get 10 different opinions.

Maggi: thanks for putting together what should be not separated.
Best wishes,
Renate

Maggi,

So instead you have these same forumists now working with hot wax and risking burns?  :o :o :o :o  I'm not sure that the sharp objects weren't a better idea? ;D

It'll be lost on them but whenever Hans and Alberto entertain us with their badinage my thoughts always turn to Morecambe and Wise ;D

Hans, Morecambe and Wise were a famous and much loved British comedy double act throughout the 1960's, 70's and early 80's
