Clivia is hardy plants that will brighten up the garden during late winter with large clusters of stunning vibrant orange, yellow, red, and peach pastel flower stalks, above the dark green strap-like leaves. They look absolutely fantastic when mass-planted!
APPEARANCE: Clumping, evergreen perennial with long, green, strap-like foliage. In late winter and early spring clusters of trumpet-shaped flowers appear on strong stems held high above the foliage, followed by red cherry-like seedpods. PLANTING: Clivia performs best in filtered light in any reasonable garden soil, including dry conditions once established. It will grow in dense shade but will not flower as well. CARE: Remove spent flower stems to encourage more flowering. Apply less water during the cooler months, this is known to encourage more flowering in spring. Reapply mulch and apply liquid fertilizer at half the regular strength each spring. Protect from frost, cold conditions, and hot afternoon sun. Lift and divide every 3-4 years or when clumps become large.
