Description

Clivia gardenii is an evergreen plant growing up to 60 cm. It is usually found growing in deep shade in forested areas and steeply sloping areas, cliffs and sometimes marshy spots. It comes primarily from Kwazulu Natal and has also been found in Mpumalanga and Swaziland. It has orange red hanging tubular flowers with greenish tips and exerted stamens and the fruit is a bright red fleshy berry. It is similar to Clivia nobilis but has fewer flowers, recurving tepal tips and leaves that taper to a pointed tip. There is much variation in plant size and flower color. Bloom time is fall into early winter. This species can tolerate fairly dry conditions.

Here is a plant for the collector or for someone seeking something different….

Usually the main part of the flower is orange, although this can vary from light pinky orange through to dark reddish orange.  We’ve found them to be vigorous, hardy plants for shady areas of the garden.  They are tolerant of drought and hot or cold weather, but they don’t care for frost.  Once established, they readily produce offsets so will establish a good sized clump over time.
