Description: Clivia caulescens is an evergreen, bulbous plant, producing rhizomes which tend to sucker and in time, grows into a large plant. The stem develops to a height of 0.5-2.0 m and 30-40 mm in diameter. In time, the lower portion of the stem becomes leafless, leaving only the leaf scars. The leaves are dark green, 400-900 x 50 mm. The inflorescence consists of 15-20 orange to cream-coloured, pendulous flowers. The petals curve outwards at their tips which are green. This species flowers in summer (October to November). The light yellow to almost purple berries vary from round to oblong and ripen after nine months.
